Over 10 years in the TMT sector, primarily focused on M&A and equity financing for tech and media companies. I have worked on a number of technology transactions ranging from $50mm to $1bn in size across the social media, mobile commerce, IP licensing and cloud computing sectors. I have end-to-end transaction experience from sourcing to valuation to execution and post-merger integration.
I began my career as a strategy consultant in the TMT sector where I worked on a number of post-merger integration projects. After completing my MBA at LBS, I joined RIM in their Corporate M&A group, where I led 4 deals including the acquisition of QNX, the Company’s revolutionary new mobile platform. After completing two years at RIM, I joined CIBC World Markets in their TMT Investment Banking group. As an Associate in the group, I worked on 4 live deals within a year including a hostile bid for an IP licensing company as well as the pending acquisition of a national data center company. My role at CIBC focused on sourcing clients and deal execution including financial modeling and valuation analysis.
