Meet Your Fellow TBOWIT Member!
Holly Herman, Bloomin' Brands
-How long have you been a member of TBOWIT?
I joined TBOWIT in the Fall of 2015.
-What drew you to the club?
When I relocated to the Tampa Bay area, I wanted to expand my network with a women's group that shared similar interests and backgrounds.
-What does your job involve? What do you do?
I work for Bloomin Brands Inc. as a Senior Accountant on the International team. My role involves partnering with local teams in our international equity markets regarding the monthly and quarterly financial reporting. In my professional experience, I've been able to learn about the business practices and cultures in Japan, Brazil, Canada and many countries in Europe through
financial and operational support roles.
-Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a suburb north of St. Paul, Minnesota.
-Give us one fun fact that we might not know about you.
I am training for my first marathon this January.
-Did you have any mentors in your life?
Early on in my career, I had a manager that was a great mentor and leadership example. I also have a supportive network of professional women in different fields that are great thought partners for career advice.
-What’s one piece of advice for women entering international business or work in general?
Don't be afraid to take on stretch assignments to learn something out of your area of expertise. You never know when you may use that knowledge or skill in a future role.
