What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Job?

The equity markets have always offered both challenges and opportunities for investors. In my role, I enjoy working with the Financial Advisor community and their clients to help them achieve their long term goals.

What Do You Enjoy Most About Working at KAR?

One of the things I like most about working at KAR are the people. The KAR Investment Team works in a true collegial environment which creates an intellectually challenging and fun work place. We all have a strong belief in our investment philosophy and high-quality approach. The depth to which the Team goes to understand the businesses in our portfolios is amazing.

What Are You Involved in Outside of Work?

I am a life long Boston Red Sox fan. As a season ticket holder, I try to get to Fenway Park as often as possible.
