“My experiences as a senior executive from both listed and privately held companies have been many and useful. The journey from startup to capitalisationand expansion to listing or sales is always varied and exciting. Both the successes and the failures have provided valuable experiences that I will bring with me as an associate partner at Ontogeny Group.”
