Consulting: What will be some of your biggest priorities in your "first 100 days" as COO at Ankura?

Messing: At the speed at which things move at Ankura, 100 days goes by very quickly.  Nevertheless, I set three priorities for my first 100 days. First, because I spent my entire career as a professional in one single practice area, I prioritized getting to know my colleagues better and learning about their respective service lines and practice areas. Our firm has attracted an incredibly diverse group of professionals and we are engaged in a wide range of expert and advisory services – all of which I need to know and understand in order to serve in my role as COO. Second, as we enter what we believe will be an exciting new phase of growth at Ankura, I've worked with the leadership team to ensure that we are fully aligned in our goals and strategies across our global businesses for 2021 and beyond. Third, for the first time in our short history, we turned to public debt markets, receiving ratings from Moody's and S&P Global, and completed a refinancing of our debt to position us for the future.
