Looking back at my 12 years of Private Equity experience, I most enjoy the sense of ownership, responsibility and the intensity for which it calls. To combine that approach with investing into stressed situations, which is only now evolving as an investment class with tremendous promise, is something I relish and I’m eagerly looking forward to being in on the action as it unfurls.
Multiples fosters a culture of not accepting the status quo, and pushing beyond self-imposed limits to ensure that each person discovers his or her own potential. Further, in recognizing that employee motivations are driven as much by family eco-systems as by professional capabilities, Multiples makes a significant holistic connect that most firms miss out on.
I am also a marathon runner, which requires the ability to think outrageously to begin with, then patience, planning and a strong work ethic to achieve the desired outcomes – all qualities that apply equally to investing.
