Please could you provide some information on your education, qualifications, and career milestones?
Prior to joining Verlinvest, I worked for H.J. Heinz, where I was placed into a range of finance and operating roles by 3G Capital, following 3G and Berkshire Hathaway’s $28bn acquisition of the company. Prior to Heinz, I worked for Barclays Capital in the Global Consumer Retail Group focusing primarily on M&A transactions in the food and beverage sectors. I received my MBA with a concentration in Entrepreneurial Management from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Psychology from Johns Hopkins University.
Please could you provide some information on your specific responsibilities at Verlinvest (if any)?
I work on deal origination and execution primarily for US-based investment opportunities with a particular focus within the F&B and e-comm sectors. I also collaborate with our Europe and Asia teams on international opportunities, especially when an investment thesis relates to the US market. On the portfolio side, I work closely with several of our partner brands, including Vita Coco (board observer), Sambazon (board member), and Summer Discovery (board member).
