Employee Spotlight – Meet Allie

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.

Tell us a bit about your role as a Corporate Development Manager at Banyan.

I spend the majority of my work days speaking with software business owners that are thinking about selling their business. I have the opportunity to build relationships with some of the most passionate, innovative people – learning how they built their business and what excites them about the future. I also work hand in hand with our M&A team as the businesses progress through to becoming part of the Banyan family. 

What qualities do you believe make a great leader, and how have you seen those demonstrated in your work here?

Curiosity, grit, and empathy come to mind first. I see all three of these in action every day at Banyan. We ask questions, we are passionate about building a world class business, and we care about our people. Our leadership team has fostered a culture that truly feels like a community.  

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

I am a certified scuba diver and I do stand-up comedy. 

What advice would you give to someone who is just starting out in your industry?

It’s a buzzword-y answer, but be a sponge! Learn from your colleagues, ask a million questions and seek both formal and informal mentorship. 

Getting into Corporate Development also means you’re going to get a lot of rejection – keep dialing, it will make the wins that much better!
