Citrin Cooperman
What led you to a career in the deal-making industry?
I love what I do, which is using my expertise as a CPA and transaction specialist to help clients make decisions – sometimes the best deal is the one you don’t do.
How does diversity add value in the deal-making process?
My team is diverse and it’s not by accident – I truly believe that bringing a diverse set of perspectives makes us better as a group. The world is diverse and the M&A community should be as well.
The most memorable deal I worked on....
Any of our restaurant deals... I love to eat!
Advice for achieving success in the industry....
Believe in yourself. You can achieve anything you set your mind to.
