What aspect of IR do you enjoy most?
I find it fascinating to see the various business strategies that companies at different growth stages and in disparate industries adopt to foster growth and create shareholder value. I feel a great sense of achievement when I assist in this process by helping clients navigate the rapidly-evolving capital markets and achieve their IR goals with our tailored IR solutions.

What part of your background has helped you succeed in IR?
My experience working closely with C-suite executives helped me develop sound business logic and a strategic viewpoint. It also gave me insight into businesses’ values and strategies and enabled me to effectively communicate these principles to investors. Additionally, my equity and debt financing experience positions me to better understand our clients’ equity stories and investment value, helping me to better meet their needs.
