President of CIT Corporate Finance
Elise is a true professional with high integrity and a strong results orientation. At CIT her problem solving acumen, communication skills, project management capabilities, tenacity and leadership were instrumental in the execution strategic and complex projects including the integration of the Corporate Finance business into the Bank and several process improvement and risk management initiatives. The due diligence skills Elise honed in her career in leveraged finance will be invaluable as she analyzes and assesses firms in her new endeavor.
In establishing Optimum Advisors, I believe Elise has identified an unmet industry need. I am confident that she will be successful in her efforts to help private equity and other middle market investment firms strengthen their operations to advance their strategic objectives.
