Daphne’s Flare Characteristics: A pace setter who brings a ‘can do’ spirit to reach for big successes, while always valuing strong team-building and creative problem-solving.   

Daphne has over 20 years of experience in financial and operations leadership roles focused in the biopharmaceutical industry where she has brought an interdisciplinary approach to implementing growth strategies for biopharmaceutical and asset management companies.

Daphne’s expertise and skills come together around capturing high-growth opportunities, building sound strategies, problem solving, engaging with the investment community, and motivating collaborative teams. In recent years, her career focus has been in corporate finance positions in rapidly-growing biopharmaceutical companies, serving in roles as CFO and head of corporate financial planning, and leading business strategy and investor relations. The earlier phase of Daphne’s career was dedicated to roles as portfolio manager, financial analyst and investment banking for healthcare practices of financial services and investment banks.

In her free time, Daphne enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 very active boys and her very special dog, enjoying the outdoors (preferably on her bicycle), and traveling.
