Global Strategic Advisor
If you ask Liz, she’ll tell you that “global strategic advisor” is just a fancy title for finding cool and innovative companies to partner with LRW. She especially loves being connected to the overall strategy and vision of the company. She gets enormous pleasure from sharing LRW’s values with leaders of interesting companies in the research and consulting spaces.
