Why I'm a JPAL
I am always amazed by the ingenuity of all the entrepreneurs and the problems they are trying to address. I'm hoping to play a small role in their success and also get a front row seat as part of that journey.
I lead acquisitions, equity investments and other strategic transactions across various franchises within J&J’s Consumer Division and have been involved in a number of key Consumer acquisitions including Dr.Ci:Labo and OGX. Prior to J&J, I spent a decade in Mergers & Acquisitions within the Investment Banking Division of Credit Suisse in New York. I started my career in Product Development, designing and developing supply chain algorithms at Oracle Corp and moved to Investment Banking after my MBA.
