Founder and CEO
I am a recent HBA graduate from the Richard Ivey School of Business who specialized in Finance and Entrepreneurship. I am actively looking to leverage my educational background and previous work experience to pursue a career in the Finance industry; specifically in the Private Equity and Venture Capital sector.
I have worked one summer as a financial analyst for Homeric Arvanitis, a boutique accounting company. Also, I have also worked eight months in real estate private equity as an investment analyst for a group of private investors. Through these experiences of performing quantitative analysis and managing projects, I have gained analytical, financial and leadership skills and honed my ability to work as a productive team member. I had the opportunity to analyze and value both residential and commercial real estate properties, which benefited private Canadian investors with their U.S. acquisition strategy.
Additionally, I founded and successfully managed my own internet marketing company over the past three years while studying full-time as a student at university. The company is now producing over $25,000 per month in revenue with four part-time employees and one project manager. Through this experience of being responsible for all aspects of starting and running a business, I have learned how to strategically problem solve and make important decisions under pressure. Additionally, I have gained analytical skills and leadership skills which have allowed me to systemize our operational processes and to attract a talented team to grow the business. The business is now self-sustainable, allowing me to resign as CEO. My successor is now responsible for the day to day operations of the business. I am now ready to pursue a new direction and to further develop my career.
Given my background in investment analysis and entrepreneurship and my acquired leadership, communication and teamwork skills over the years, I believe I would be a particularly strong candidate for my chosen areas of interest: Private Equity and Venture Capital.
I am open to discussing my qualifications and to answering any questions you may have with regards to my resume.
Thank you for your interest.
