West Orange, NJ (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Cassells, a veteran of the IR services industry, spent nine years at the Altman Group where she ran the firm’s shareholder ID and global proxy solicitation division. During her tenure, she built a first class investor intelligence business serving clients in developed and emerging markets around the world. Prior to Altman, she held positions at Georgeson, Citigate Dewe Rogerson, Taylor Rafferty, and recently LS Global.
Former senior Altman executives who joined Cassells are Ngozi Okoji and Livia Pereira. This move comes after American Stock Transfer & Trust Company (AST), which acquired The Altman Group in 2011, dissolved the Altman’s global share ID and proxy division amidst refocusing its core business.
“I am very excited about this opportunity, to continue to champion high level client servicing, ranging from Investor Relations support to Corporate Governance expertise,” said Cassells, President of Alpha Advisory Associates, Inc. “Although we have moved on, we remain committed to delivering the quality service our clients demanded from the precursor group at Altman.”
The new firm will continue the Altman legacy business unit offering services to global companies to include Shareholder Identification, Proxy Solicitation, Targeting, Perception Studies, and IR & Governance Roadshows.
