For me, it’s all about the relationships. I love building a partnership with each one of my clients, being an ongoing champion for their businesses and earning the position of a trusted strategic advisor. With some of my clients, I’ve been able to experience the entire public company lifecycle – the excitement of the IPO, the up’s and down’s of public company reporting, and the finality of an M&A transaction. It’s an honor to be seen as a trusted advisor during one of the most exciting chapter’s in a Company’s development.
See more of the best and brightest in the industry.
