For the past 18 years, I have been driving innovation, minimizing risk, and accelerating trading and operations activities for financial services and investment firms. I began my career as a developer and advanced to the senior executive level where I have the opportunity to align business and technology strategies while providing solutions to support and facilitate front-, middle-, and back-office operations.
Because of my extensive background in Alternative Investment/Asset management industry, I understand the needs of asset management companies, and I am able to develop leading-edge solutions to support all levels of the financial organization—from senior executives through Portfolio Managers, Traders (executing global and domestic equities, derivatives, swaps, FX, distressed debt, bespoke credit, and other products), and accountants.
Strengths and attributes include:
