Christina Bianco In 60 Seconds...

With over 25 years of professional accounting experience, Christine’s passion is to help organizations achieve their most ambitious goals. The diversity of her experience has afforded her the vantage point of supporting both large, multi-national companies and smaller, fast-growing local operations, as well as private versus public company and family office structures. Christine’s roles have led her to not only oversee efficient finance teams with robust business process controls but also to assist in turning around distressed operations, facilitate strategic M&A and divestiture activities, and moderate strategic business plans for future success. Her board work has also given her a keen appreciation for governance in organizations, as chair of the audit committee for a TSXV-listed company. Christine is also keen to volunteer her time to the board and finance committees of a not-for-profit independent school, in addition to mentoring founders as they embark on their exciting start-up ventures.
