Operations and Transaction Co-Ordinator

As Operations and Transaction Co-Ordinator at DLA, I play a key role within the business as I contribute to the effective management of each transaction through the monitoring of each project timeline, management of the CRM system and providing support to the transaction team where necessary.

I entered the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) industry in 2014 and experienced rapid growth in my career working on numerous M&A projects as a project manager which involved proactively managing relationships with clients, co-ordinating internal resources and liaising with prospective acquirers in search of acquisition opportunities. Through exposure to industry pioneers and working with highly skilled individuals, I have built up an exceptional databank of knowledge and key learnings to draw from.
