What is your background / story?
What is your role at Mercatus?
I joined Mercatus as a Solution Engineering Manager and my goal is to contribute to Mercatus’ growth around the world and mainly in Europe. I am hoping to play a key part in the pre-sales process and become the bridge between sales and implementation.
In your past role(s) what are some unmet needs from private market investors around data management technology?
One of the main unmet needs was a lack of flexibility when it came to managing different asset classes within a software platform. Most point-solutions would respond to a specific need but would not be able to cover the whole investment portfolio requirements and complexities. Another pain point was not allowing the platforms to communicate seamlessly, which can be a challenge and costly.
How do you see private market technology evolving over the next decade?
I believe that technology will play a key role for fund managers and will be embedded in their operations. I can see private market software becoming vital in the decision-making process. Those who don’t have the right platform will be left behind or will not able to scale as expected. We hear from the market that LPs are requesting more data more frequently and this can be achieved by leveraging the right software.
What excites you about Mercatus?
I am thrilled to be part of Mercatus for several reasons: First and foremost, people here are professional, hard workers, and team-oriented. Secondly, the product is brilliant, modern, and has a lot of potential.

Give us a fun fact about yourself.
I speak many languages and sometimes, in the same sentence, my accent can change from one language to another, especially when I am not sure how to pronounce a word.
