Chief Operating Officer, Private Placement Group, Americas
Macquarie Asset Management
I lead the day-to-day operations of our capital raising team for our infrastructure and real assets business. We are constantly building and maintaining relationships with institutional investors, so we can bring them products that are a good fit for their portfolios. As Chief Operating Officer, I also supervise our regulatory compliance function.
I joined Macquarie because I was looking for a dynamic, entrepreneurial business with a global footprint and strong growth potential. For this phase of my career I wanted to be somewhere I could envision learning and growing.
My top tip for new starters is to share your ideas and raise your hand to implement them. At Macquarie, you are really encouraged to suggest new ideas and get the support to pursue them. Macquarie is constantly moving into new areas and growing and expanding its businesses.
One of my most rewarding experiences was as global project manager for the $US3 billion capital raising for one of our North American infrastructure funds. This was a significant achievement for the business and for me personally. It was a global team effort and the close collaboration resulted in a better, more transparent process for new investors and their consultants.
Head of Mining, Corporate and Asset Finance Group
I am part of our Corporate and Asset Finance Group based in Nashville, Tennessee. I manage the Profit and Loss statement for the global mining equipment finance division. I was attracted to Macquarie as it offered a global platform where my team and I can transact business.
Macquarie is a place where you can build your career by bringing innovative ideas to the table. There is freedom to choose your own direction as long as you can produce a strong business plan, including a good risk review.
I work with an incredible group of motivated team members globally. Their tireless efforts make this a really easy place to come to work in the morning. One highlight has been working alongside my colleagues in Macquarie Capital. I was able to see the dedication and teamwork they bring to a client pitch. Now I’m building those skills within my own team and I hope to replicate their success.
Associate, Macquarie Capital
I was attracted to join Macquarie by the innovative culture, diversity of deal exposure and the potential to participate in the growing offshore expansion.
I started at Macquarie as a graduate working in the Sydney office, and am currently located in the New York office with the Real Estate team. The most rewarding aspect of my role is working with clients and progressing a transaction from an initial pitch through to successful completion.
The best advice I can offer any student considering joining Macquarie is to do an internship. Internships allow you to get hands-on experience and the opportunity to meet people from many different parts of the business and work out where you are best suited.
