Meet Liz. (Picture from Liz's intern challenge. A little BAMA-themed charades!)
Liz fills many roles as a Project Manager at BAMA. While there is a general process that each engagement takes, no two transactions are alike, so a lot of Liz's day has to be fluid to handle whatever is needed. Most days, she can be found building an offering memorandum, focused on marketing initiatives and email campaigns, or driving the diligence process for a client who is under contract. Variety is the spice of life!
What do you love most about project management? I love checking things off the list! I have always thrived with logistics, so qualifying buyers, coordinating onsite visits and driving the diligence process really satisfies me. I enjoy designing graphics for our marketing materials and working on offering memorandums for our sell-side clients. I try to learn as much as possible from everyone in the office and all the meetings or calls that take place. I learn something new every day.
What drew you to BAMA? The culture! I started working at BAMA wile I was getting my MBA in Charlotte and going through a career change. The internship intrigued me and I applied right away. While interning here, I could tell this was a unique group of people who geniunely enjoy working together and love what they do each day. M&A is fascinating. These people work hard but find time to laugh amidst the chaos, I wanted to be a part of that.
