Everyday I strive for transparency and to build trust with our supportive limited partners.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is working with my incredibly talented and dedicated colleagues. Each day as CFO/CCO of Great Hill Partners presents a unique challenge and I am extremely fortunate to be able to tackle those challenges with employees at every level of the organization that are humble and embrace the Great Hill mission every day.
What is your most memorable class in college?
Perhaps predictably, and most certainly boringly, my most memorable class was Federal Income Taxation. This senior-year course was my first in-depth look at the Federal Tax Code and cemented my interest in this area. Given the complexity of the tax code, this was one of my most difficult classes, but I found myself oddly energized by researching the code and applying it to solve problems. Today, tax is a key aspect of my role across the life cycle of all of the entities Great Hill manages, and I look back fondly on this tax course as a foundational experience.
What is your favorite sports team?
Growing up in Boston I have been a rabid fan of our professional sports teams my entire life, but the Red Sox have been my favorite since they inspired me to dream of being a major-league baseball player when I grew up. That dream ended at about age 12, but the Red Sox have provided some of the most indelible memories in my life. I was a crying six year-old when the ball went through Bill Buckner’s legs, a hopeless optimist in the ‘90s, and despondent when Aaron Boone’s home run landed in the left-field stands of Yankee Stadium. Along with the other die-hard fans, I was emotionally exhausted when the team finally broke the curse in 2004, but all of the disappointment truly made that celebration one I will never forget.
