I joined Cranemere because my work in the Obama Administration led me to believe that there is a better way to invest to build long-term economic value for all stakeholders. At the NEC, I was part of the team that studied the negative impact of “corporate short-termism” on the United States’ economic competitiveness.
When I learned about Cranemere’s unique long-term model, values oriented decision making, and partnership approach with its operating companies, I was excited by the opportunity to invest in a way that can not only garner superior financial results, but also create real, sustainable value for all stakeholders.
When I’m not working, I’m spending time in Central Park with my kids and trying to fit in as many days on the ski slopes as possible.
