“We consider our clients our partners in every sense – our success is measured by their success – and our independent business model enables us to invent and pursue unconventional solutions to complex transactions, all while delivering superior value.”
Trust embodies our approach to relationship-based investment banking – without it, all else is moot. Experience speaks to the fact that all assignments are led and executed by senior professionals who have deep experience – at its core, this is why clients engage Cascadia. Independence enables us to focus on advice and solutions that avoid structural conflicts and provide a wide array of options. Results speak for themselves – we are intensely proud of the fact that we have shared in the success of our clients.
The pursuit of excellence. I have a resilient confidence in my ability to affect optimal outcomes in strategic corporate transactions – this is done through creativity, rigor, endurance and communication.
I am passionate about family, sports and travel. I am extremely fortunate to have such a strong grounding in my family and I work hard so that I can spend time experiencing life with them.
When I am not working, I can usually be found at an ice rink or on a field or other sport venue cheering on my children. Sports have been a large part of my life and I attribute the development of important characteristics to competition and athletic development.
Being Canadian, it is essentially required that I be passionate about ice hockey – so I am. I love to travel and I am fortunate that I get to experience different countries and cultures in doing what I do for a living.
