Blackstone and Park Hill employ some of the best people in their fields, and as a result, I am constantly learning from my colleagues and clients. In my work specifically, no two fundraising processes are the same, so there are always opportunities to learn more and be challenged.
What surprised you the most about Blackstone/your group when you first joined?
Coming from a large investment bank, I was first surprised by how flat our organization truly is – a lot of firms say they are, but our senior professionals in Park Hill are truly accessible for advice and input.
What assignments/deals have been most rewarding?
One of the best parts of my job is helping clients raise funds – in some cases, their first institutional fund. It’s rewarding to see them successfully invest that capital and generate great returns for their investors.
How has Blackstone helped your career aspirations?
Blackstone, and specifically, Park Hill offer a lot of opportunities for advancement and growth. As part of a small group, there are always opportunities to take on more responsibility and grow professionally. In addition, Blackstone offers a lot of programming and opportunities to work with and get to know colleagues in other groups.
