About Frank

The intellectual challenge of working on totally different topics from one day to the next keeps me on my toes.

Quick Q&A

Favorite part of your role?


The range of work. One day you can be working on forecasting a bank’s balance sheet and the next on detecting fraud in a corporation. Whether it’s a different type of methodology to apply, a new kind of client challenge, or working with a new team, you’re always stretching your thinking to deliver the best.

What has surprised you the most?


How much people are invested in your growth. I remember in my first six months, as I was acclimating, I had a senior partner mentor me who would make time to talk regardless of our different time zones. It’d be 4:30 in the morning for him, and he would get on the phone and coach me through different situations.

Most memorable project?


Working with an investment bank to create a set of 26 models to forecast financials—in just six weeks! It was amazing to see how much could get done in such a short period of time with a lean team of ten spread out across the globe.
