Zach Gomes
We worked together  •  Chief Operations Officer, Hilltribe Organics Ltd.. Previously Writer/Reporter, Brooklyn Magazine.
Ivan was portfolio manager for my company for LGTVP investments, and it was a real pleasure to work together with him. When asked to prepare ... us a financial model on a business in a field that was new to him, he very quickly created a highly sophisticated model for us, with a great amount of flexibility. It became a key tool for our business and planning, and remains so to this day. Ivan's helpful attitude and strong work ethic made him a great asset to our company, and I would heartily recommend him to anyone in need of financial insight.

We worked together  •  Principal, Unitus Impact. Previously Investment Manager, Southeast Asia, LGT Venture Philanthropy.
Ivan is a smart, dedicated professional who is passionate about building businesses with social and environmental impact. He has significan ... t insight into the investor mindset, having extensive experience on the investor side, but also a willingness to roll up his sleeves and get things done. I worked directly with Ivan for over a year at a global impact investor, and was very impressed by his analytical and financial modelling skills. Just as importantly, he's a great team player and built strong relationships with our portfolio companies and broader network in the region.
