What led you to a career in the deal-making industry?
I have been attracted to the lending industry given the potential to learn about a broad spectrum of businesses, industries and investment products, which has been important to developing expertise as a lending professional in underwriting, portfolio management and managing select troubled transactions throughout my career.
Tell us about your experience and what was different during the Covid-19?
My career has been greatly influenced by mentors and teammates. During COVID, we operated efficiently to execute at record volumes while maintaining high standards, but I had to dedicate time to ensure I sustained personal connections with my colleagues to maintain the culture that differentiates Churchill from other firms.
Recent most memorable deal I worked on....
The Sciens transaction, as it showcases Churchill’s growth (largest transaction to date), Churchill’s role as a leading market player, and my own execution capabilities under tight timelines.
