“Tanya has established herself as a thought leader in our industry. She not only led innovative investments during her tenure at OTPP but also has a legacy of providing sound business and leadership counsel to the firms with whom she partners. I count her as a friend, trusted advisor and leader in the GP/LP community.”
“Tanya has been a true leader and partner as we advanced engagement on ESG and impact in private equity. She brought the courage of her convictions, a commitment to a rigorous, evidence-based approach, and knowledge that collaboration between GPs and LPs (that she could spearhead) was critical to field-building.”
