Business often acts as a force for change. As a young woman, Amela Dybeli had a front row seat to this dynamic, watching her native Albania embrace the free market after four decades of smothering communist rule.
“There is no better way to understand the fundamentals of a market economy than to witness one being created in front of your eyes,” she explains, “with the influx of the western brands into the Albanian market in the mid-to-late 90s with products like Coca-Cola, Ariel, Gorenje ovens and Samsung color TVs.” In the process, she experienced how such products enriched the lives OF her country’s people and fostered a sense of community.
These events left quite an impression. After majoring in finance at Manhattan College, the 29-year-old worked first at Deloitte and then Ernst & Young in Albania and quit to follow in her family’s footsteps to launch a startup of her own. Now, she is returning to the states to switch careers to marketing — with her formative years echoing in her long-term ambitions. “My dream job would enable me to continuously study consumer behavior and manage a multinational brand that is focused on innovation, sustainability and in enriching everyday lives.”
