The majority of the firm, as well as my senior partnership are female executives; and leaders like Katie bring tremendous impact to our industry as a whole. Watching Katie grow into the determined, resilient and ambitious leader she is today has been a highlight of my career. She is a role model and mentor to all women (and men) across the firm, and wholeheartedly invests in the success & growth of our employees, at all levels.”

“I am so excited to be joining this incredible group of leaders as I move into the role of Managing Director. To Paul and the entire leadership team, thank you for fostering an environment where grit, tenacity and hard work always pays off. And a very special thank you to Laura Kinder, a true champion for women in tech and a personal mentor and friend. You have always stood in my corner and encouraged me to be my most authentic self. For the past ten years I have looked to your example as a partner and leader in this firm and will do so for the next ten to come,” said Fischer.
