Employee Spotlight – Meet Alex

In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re proud to feature four incredible team members who have made a significant impact on our organization and beyond.

Can you tell us a bit about your current role, and what you enjoy most about it?

As an M&A associate I get to dive deep into the businesses we are interested in buying by learning about all aspects of a company such as their financials, team make up, and customer relationships. For weeks at a time I focus on developing relationships with our sellers, while learning about the great business they have built. I love how I have the opportunity to meet sellers from across the world and learn about different businesses – it keeps work interesting and is my favorite part.

How would you describe the company culture? 

The Banyan team is full of hardworking, smart and supportive individuals who all have a great team attitude. We would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for everyone’s willingness to roll up their sleeves and help where help is needed. Additionally, the senior management team has our best interests in mind and are always looking for opportunities to challenge us and help us grow into better business professionals.

What’s something about you (a fun fact) that not many people know? 

For the past 4 years I have had the opportunity to volunteer weekly at SickKids Hospital. As a Child Life volunteer I am able to provide patients a distraction from their current environment by playing their favorite game, coloring or reading stories with them, while also giving their parents some relief. Banyan provides me with the flexibility to build this commitment into my weekly schedule and it always is a highlight of my week.

What advice would you give to other women who are just starting out in their careers, especially in industries where they may be in the minority?

Don’t be intimidated by new challenges or opportunities. While you might think that you are not qualified or have all the skills needed to succeed, a good attitude and a willingness to learn will go farther than you think.
