This post is bittersweet for me to write. It’s both exciting and yet, difficult to put down my thoughts.
The time has come for me to move on… but first, a brief explanation.
I started this website approximately one year ago and it was born out of my previous work in this extraordinary asset class. I simply enjoyed following the SPAC Market. And reporting on it thoughtfully was a natural extension of that. However, it has been equal parts joy and torture. I loved building a business, watching it grow and most importantly, getting to interact with many of you. At the same time, my previous experience as a banker and the desire to be even more engaged directly with the process and product, has made me re-evaluate “how” I want to be involved with SPACs going forward.
And so, I have made the decision to close the site in order to pursue new opportunities. It is difficult for me to end an endeavor that I have been so passionate about for so long, but I know that this decision is the right one. This is not goodbye forever… I plan on, and am optimistic, that my next role will be SPAC related as well.
As SPACInsider, I feel incredibly lucky to have had the good fortune to make so many new friends and contacts, and I look forward to continuing the SPAC conversation as I move on. The SPAC community is small, but growing, and I have loved being able to have found a voice through the website.
I’m looking forward to finally being able to take off the “cloak” and well, it’s just time.
See you around the neighborhood….
