  • Have experience connecting the dots both ways between company objectives, business strategy, and financial models
  • Have experience in key accounting concepts, financial statement analysis, governance and risk.
  • Have experience conducting quantitative/financial analysis, developing recommendations and then telling the story in a variety of mediums to a broad spectrum of financial & non-financial stakeholders.
