“After 3 years in public markets, I am very happy to join Gambit Corporate Finance. Being trilingual, I was keen to gain exposure to cross-border opportunities and with Gambit being the exclusive UK shareholder of The CFI Group ( the fit was perfect. I believe that Gambit is strongly placed to make the most of transactional opportunities as they arise to create maximum value for our clients, and I hope to leverage my experience and add value to the team.”
