Our people and progress
Before he began working in talent at companies ranging from Thumbtack to Nava PBC to founding a boutique talent consultancy for tech startups, Mawulom was a biomedical engineer working for the U.S. Army in R&D. Given his background, the career change made total sense. Born in Togo, West Africa, Mawulom immigrated to the U.S. at a young age. Exploring new cultures and traveling led him to understand the power of bonding with people in their comfort zones. “Along the way, I found many strings that connect us all.” It’s hard to imagine a better mindset for the Head of Talent at LTSE.
Mawulom came to LTSE for “the opportunity to grow with impact-driven humans.” Now, the depth, purpose and adventure of his upbringing are part of his professional world, too.
We are building for people from all walks of life and are hiring folks from all walks of life.

Even in large organizations across the many industries where she worked previously, Carol was often the only woman in the room “and one of only a few POC. I know firsthand the difficulty of managing your sense of otherness and code switching to put others at ease.” She sought a different experience and, after more than two decades of focusing primarily on work, better balance, too.
At LTSE, she’s found what she was looking for, along with the most stimulating environment of her career. “Every day I learn something new because my colleagues are both experts in their respective fields and collaborative. I also feel valued for both my inherent diversity as a woman and a person of color and my acquired diversity of professional experience.”
Carolyn came to LTSE from Obama’s White House Office of Management and Budget. She planned to continue in a public service role, but when she learned about LTSE, “was intrigued by a private company that offered a similar mission-oriented environment to what I’d experienced in government.”
She was also drawn to the company’s commitment to a culture that prizes the places where personal and professional connections between colleagues intersect. "Homogenous groups make people who aren't in the “club” feel like outcasts.
Beginner’s mindset is impossible if everyone looks and thinks the same way." Having benefited from “selfless and powerful support by incredible women,” Carolyn values passing it on.
We are constantly learning and growing, but treating people well stays at the core of our values.

Lindsay has spent her career at the intersection of brand, product, and business. As LTSE’s Head of Marketing, she’s helping to build something “entirely new. When I first learned about LTSE, I thought: this is a necessary force of good for companies and the world at large.”

As a minority who has lived on 3 continents, Ola’s life has been enriched by exposure to many different cultures and perspectives. In his work for LTSE, he’s always aware that “diversity comes in various forms, and the more diverse a team or organization is, the more creative they’ll be.”
As a specialist in data analysis and insights, Ola was drawn to LTSE’s vision for freeing companies from the pressures of financial growth so that they need not compromise their founding values. The same commitment to values drew him to the company personally.
Working with an organization that encourages experimentation and supports its employees wholly has pushed him to work towards products and solutions for a more diverse future for everyone.
A proud New Yorker, Nawreen lives in one of the most diverse areas of the city. There, she finds “meaning and resonance for the richness and modalities of my identity.” This vibrant, multi-faceted perspective has made LTSE an ideal landing spot for her at a time when she feels the next phase of capitalism must be established collectively. That includes ensuring that organizations lead by example.
As LTSE works towards realigning not just the financial markets but the expectations for what our future can bring on so many fronts, Nawreen notes, “our teams should reflect the world we live in and are trying to impact.”

As “one of those odd kids who longed to work from my earliest years,” Holly was thrilled when an entrepreneur offered her an internship and then a job. She developed skills as a financial analyst and management consultant and was exposed to a wide range of industries. “He threw me into the deep end. I saw how decisions were made and had a seat at the table.” As leader of operations, Holly oversees a cross-functional team spanning finance, legal, HR, talent, culture, marketing, communications, and investor relations. She keeps her good fortune in mind, too. The combination of autonomy and collaboration is inspiring to her. “One of the joys of growing a team is the opportunity to build relationships with people who teach you new things.”
