Alba Molinero Vigara, B.A. (University of Córdoba)
Business Development Manager, Project Manager
Alba has a degree in Translation and Interpretation from the University of Córdoba in Spain. She also spent time studying in the universities in Metz, France and in Tunis, Tunisia.
Her advanced knowledge of English, French, Italian and Arabic allowed her to pursue a career in International Trade, where she soon became an expert in international goods exchange and sales. She has worked in various roles, including regional sales manager for one of the largest companies in the construction sector, which gave her extensive knowledge of customer management and business development.
In mid 2015 she made the decision to relocate to Dublin to seek a job in which she could utilize both her education as a translator and her experience in international business.
Alba started as Snasta’s Business Development Manager in June 2016.
