Senior Executive with extensive experience building and managing departments and businesses. My experience includes working in in start-up environments, as well as large public companies. My roles have encompassed a wide range of responsibilities including management, marketing, client service, operations and compliance. My objective in all of my roles has been to unite people and different departmental functions to drive a common goal forward.

I believe I demonstrate strong leadership skills and have a desire to lead and motivate teams to achieve firm wide goals.
