Prior to joining Chartline, Becker worked at Booz & Company where he was seconded to a private equity fund led by a former senior partner from Goldman Sachs and focused on global growth opportunities. Becker managed teams for origination, due-diligence, valuation and financial modeling, and presentations to the Investment Committee. His work covered energy, mining, infrastructure, media, and business services across North American, Brazil, and Asia.
Becker was also a management consultant with Booz & Company in the Energy, Chemicals, & Utilities Practice. At Booz, Becker served Fortune 500 executives in cost-cutting, marketing strategy, and operational improvements. Becker came to Booz through the acquisition of his prior firm, Katzenbach Partners in 2009. Becker began his career as an apprentice at a New York litigation firm where he had the opportunity to write an appellate brief and sit “second chair” at a federal jury trial (representing a venture firm in breach of fiduciary duty case), which inspired his life-long commitment to helping companies successfully navigate through challenging periods in their lives.
