Over 30 NIRI NY NextGen Investor Relations Professionals Attend “Trivia & Networking Night” Event in NYC

On October 4th, over 30 NIRI NY NextGen IR professionals attended a trivia and networking event at The Ainsworth in Manhattan. The event was created exclusively for New York area “NextGen” members and those interested in joining. Rebecca Updegraph of Rivel Research (and VP, NIRI New York Board of Directors) who oversees the chapter’s NextGen initiative, and Allison Sobel of Joele Frank (and NIRI NY NextGen Committee President) hosted the event, which was organized by the NIRI NY NextGen committee: Mark Eckstein (Ipreo), Sherif El-Azzazi (Brookfield Property Group), Adam Fromowitz (AST), Tanya Kamatu (Catalyst IR), Mei Kuo (ShakeShack) and Lauren Tarola (Edelman).

The event attendance was diverse including investor relations officers, consultants as well as service providers from multiple industries.

Following an entertaining hour of trivia, attendees had the opportunity to network with each other while enjoying complimentary cocktails and bites. In addition to bragging rights, the winning trivia team got to go home with well-deserved Starbucks Gift Cards!
