From lawyer to educator to journalist
From analyst/programmer to higher education coordinator to GRC consulting
From educator to sales
From rocket scientist to electronic trading specialist to new product development
From web producer to UX whiz
From youth worker to journalist, teacher, banker, risk manager to GRC&P consultant…

… what we have in common is a passion for innovation and making a difference. We thrive in a fast-growing environment and we thrive on working with the best of the best.
