"Having read ‘Lean In’ by Sheryl Sandberg I remembered her talking about accepting a new job as someone had advised, “when you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship you don’t question it, you just get on.” I recognized that Ares is going places, and having been lucky enough to be offered a seat, I jumped on."

"There were three things that really attracted me to the firm. One is people. I already knew a few people that I worked with at previous employers who actually joined Ares and they gave me really positive feedback about the company. Two is the niche that Ares operates in, which is the alternative investment space. Three is the fact that Ares is a very reputable and successful operator in that space."
