What do you do at Mizuho?
I provide corporate finance coverage for our technology clients.

What surprised you about Mizuho?
Mizuho surprised me with its experience in product areas and the ability of colleagues to come together to deliver the right solutions for our clients.

What is the first thing you read every day?
I read a variety of news publications every day, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and my local paper.

How is Mizuho different from other places?
The people and culture at Mizuho are truly unique. There’s a greater focus on teamwork here.

What’s a particularly proud moment you’ve had here?
A proud moment for me was working as part of a team to put in place an extremely large structured financial commitment for a client in just a few days. Without Mizuho’s commitment to team orientation, that wouldn’t have been possible.

In financial services, I’ve learned that relationships are the key to growth and success.
