An Insider's view of EquiLend

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Having worked for EquiLend for over 7 years, the company's approach to having a work-life balance has also changed. The company has added more flexibility, which has motivated me to give more and go above and beyond for the company. I feel this approach suits my needs to be able to manage family life as well as being able to maintain a career.


Client Relationship Management- Europe

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I began in Client Services where I gained the expertise to support the full-service offering. From there I stepped into a client-facing role expanding my skill set on the relationship management side of the business. As the company continues to innovate, I’ve been able to gain new skills and develop my position in the market as an industry expert.


Head of EquiLend Canada

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

It’s simple. Sit on the floor next to everyone else! I also make it known that my virtual door is always open, even if I appear to be working intently on something. Collaboration is vital to the success of our business, and it doesn’t stop at the C-suite.



What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Great ideas can come from anywhere in the organization. So employees of all disciplines are encouraged to participate in an annual innovation contest, where we hear directly from the people who drive EquiLend’s success on how to make our business better. Last year’s winning proposal was successfully released in a proof of concept beta test.
