Work Breaks Don’t Signal Career Brakes

Presented by Columbia Business School

In our second episode featuring the School’s UK-based graduates, we visit with Lee Georgs ’03, the Chief Operating Officer of Corporate for the investment consultancy Redington and co-President of the London alumni club.

Lee Georgs has held positions with some of the world’s most prestigious investment banks, including Citibank, JP Morgan and Credit Suisse. Her career path has not been a straight line.

Since graduating from Columbia, Georgs moved from New York to Hong Kong to London, while taking some breaks from work along the way. She tells us how those periods away from the office changed her perspective — and created new opportunities.
