Grace is a Director of People Operations on the Accordion Team. She is passionate about all things people-related and thrives on the challenges presented by rapid organizational growth and change. In her role, Grace works closely with Accordion’s management team to develop a people strategy that will drive the company’s long-term aspirations while preserving and articulating its unique culture.
After graduating from Fordham University with a degree in English, Grace spent two years recruiting Investment Banking Associates for UBS Investment Bank followed by consecutive recruiting, talent management, and project management roles at Google, Cerberus Capital Management, and BlackRock respectively.
Prior to joining Accordion, Grace spent two years at Bridgewater Associates where she learned the art of recruiting with radical transparency, and owned the end-to-end experience for senior candidates throughout the assessment and hiring process.
In between jobs, Grace has traveled extensively throughout Europe on a shoe-string budget and spent time working with Mother Teresa’s nuns in Calcutta, India. Outside of work, Grace enjoys snowboarding, meditation, and dragging her beautiful baby, Rivington, (who is named after the street that she and her husband met on) all over Manhattan.
