“If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.”
Playing competitive soccer throughout my childhood taught me many valuable lessons: discipline, a positive attitude and how to be a great teammate. A disciplined approach to any assignment or task will create consistent and efficient results. The attitude you carry each day will impact the energy around you. And being a great teammate will encourage a winning environment. These lessons have stayed with me as an adult and shaped my leadership style.
Throughout my career, I have placed high importance on mentorship. Having worked at a few funds, I benefited from senior leaders taking the time to challenge me and broaden my skill set. I now share these experiences with my colleagues and enjoy being a sounding board for the group. I am also a mentor for undergraduate students majoring in accounting and finance, which is incredibly rewarding as I see them embark on their careers.
Prior to joining Tishman, I was a founding member of a new fund launch, which allowed me to take entrepreneurial risks and wear many different hats. I found this sort of environment to be dynamic and thoroughly fulfilling. Here, I love that a similar energy exists. Roles are blended across many disciplines, and innovation and creativity are welcomed. This has allowed us to act with speed and a lot of flexibility when launching new funds and strategies. Knowing we can bring new ideas to fruition and build the next generation of businesses is truly exciting.
