My career before joining Baringa was varied and included spells in Investment Banking, Management Consulting, the start-up world and even writing a fictional novel.
I joined in 2011 as a number of individuals who I had worked with in the past and who I really respected were now at Baringa. I loved what I heard about the people and culture during the interview and have not looked back since joining.
Clients often ask me what I like about Baringa and for me it comes down to four key things: Great people; flexibility, an entrepreneurial culture and a senior leadership team I admire.
As a Director within our Financial Sponsors group, I bring the best of Baringa to our Private Equity and Infrastructure Fund clients. I work across pre-deal due diligence and post-deal value creation engagements. I have had the opportunity to develop strategies and implement these at clients across all our sectors including Banking, Insurance, Utilities, Telecoms and Consumer Products. Finally, as a Customer Experience and Digital expert, I am currently deeply immersed in helping our clients with their Digital & Channel strategies.
I came to Baringa having worked within a number of businesses which paid lip-service to their ‘culture’; Baringa revealed itself to be very different and has continued to surpass my expectations during the eight or so years that I have been here. I think we are doing some really interesting work which is adding real value to all our clients and I am proud to work here.
