5 Questions With…Ramon Vergara
1. Where were you/what did you do before working at Seriously?
I worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment in the Business Development team of the Media Networks business. I worked on mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures and business plans for launches of over-the-top video services and television networks. Prior to that, I completed an MBA at UCLA Anderson and before UCLA I worked in investment banking in Santiago, Chile at BTG Pactual on M&A advisory and equity capital markets transactions.
2. What is your current role at Seriously?
I work on the finance team and focus on financial planning and analysis, presentations for the Board of Directors and investors, and generating business insights that support strategic decisions by management. I have also been working on the implementation of a new ERP (enterprise resource planning) system and assist in the completion of annual financial audits.
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
Collaborating with extremely talented colleagues in a great work environment. The company culture is very unique with offices in Helsinki and L.A. that collaborate extremely well together. I enjoy being connected to the creative and analytical process that goes into the product development and marketing. It’s exciting to see all the small details in action that contribute to the company’s success.
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
Freddie, because he’s a traveler like me, always has a smile on his face, and loves to play music. I think we would have fun hanging out together.
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy outdoor sports such as biking, skiing, and scuba diving. My wife and I love to travel within California on weekends, especially to its wine regions, and abroad to explore countries that we haven’t visited yet. I enjoy learning about new cultures and seeing how people live in other parts of the world.
