Thorough - Dynamic - Innovative

A solid foundation in financial operations and strategy, as well as day-to-day financial management across major finance functions: accounting and reporting, budgeting and planning, and treasury informed by an MBA from the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago, as well as a CFA and a CPA.
I am highly adept at building and leading matrixed teams, creating structure from utter chaos, integrating financial and operations systems to work in symphony at companies such as such as Textron, Planet, Gild, and Boku.
Nimbleness in working across borders and business units building financial departments, processes, and with subsidiaries in EMEA, CIS, Latin America, and Asia
I have in-depth experience in creating and expanding Finance departments, creating new business functions (FP&A, FX & Treasury, Payment operations), upgrading accounting and reporting to public company standards, aligning IT and managing ERP implementations, investor reporting, and leading employees and management through culture change.
Fluent in M&A from due diligence phase until completion of integration resulting in successful transitions that assured financial and reporting compliance, enabled streamlined organizational structures, and helped materialize the synergies planned in the acquisition.
