Britta von Oesen, Managing Director at CohnReznick Capital, sheds light on motivation, the keys to building a successful advisory practice, and critical advice for renewable energy clients.
#1 – Importance of passion – “I love what I do. I’m not in this for banking’s sake. I’m in this for renewable energy. This is the field I choose.”
#2 – Biggest challenge – “We are fiercely protective of our company culture. Our culture is a very significant differentiator for us, both when recruiting talent as well as originating deals and signing on new clients. They see how passionate we are about how we treat people and doing deals in the right way.”
#3 – What we provide – “Access to capital in a quick and efficient high-value manner. What we bring to the table is the market knowledge of the appropriate buyers, the competitive tension to run a properly organized and efficient process, and the ability to see this through from start to finish with the least amount of interruption in our clients’ day-to-day business.”
