Christine Friedman – Chief Administrative Officer
Invested Banker to the Consumer Industry

Christi began her career in finance in 2007 as an analyst at Perella Weinberg Partners in the Corporate M&A Finance Department. In 2011, she joined UBS working in the office of the Vice Chairman of the Investment Bank, Americas.

At Sawaya Partners, which she joined in 2013, Christi oversees back office staff, as well as the Compliance, Human Resources, Finance, Technology, Facilities and Special Event functions. She is Co-Captain of the firm’s triathlon team (and owes the firm thanks for the introduction).

Before her career in Finance, Christi was a Fashion Editor at various Conde Nast Publications and co-managed an agency for Fashion and Beauty Photographers, Stylists, Hairdressers and Makeup Artists.
Outside of work Christi is personally invested in:
Olympic Triathlons and 70.3 (a.k.a. torturing myself in 3 sports that she says she will never perfect). Also, (and somehow related) searching for the perfect doughnut.
