Melbourne and Sydney: Market Eye, Australia’s leading specialist investor relations advisory firm, is pleased to announce an expansion of its senior team with the appointment of Craig Sainsbury as Executive Director (Melbourne office) and Stephanie Ottens as Director (Sydney office).
Craig was previously Managing Director and Head of Asia Pacific Metals and Mining Research at Goldman Sachs, and prior to that at Citigroup. A top-rated resource sector research analyst in Australia, he was responsible for coordination of Goldman Sachs’ Asia-Pacific metals and mining team.
Stephanie previously managed investor relations activities at Investa Office Fund, Gateway Lifestyle and MediBio, and consulted as an IR specialist. Stephanie will lead the Sydney office, replacing Orla Keegan who after four years with Market Eye is returning to Ireland for family reasons.
Welcoming Craig and Stephanie to the team, Market Eye Founder & Managing Director Ronn Bechler said the appointments would further enhance the firm’s leadership in providing a full suite of investor relations advisory and market intelligence capabilities from small to large cap listed companies across a broad range of sectors.
“A key growth area for Market Eye is the resource sector, which accounts for close to 20% of the ASX by market capitalisation. Craig’s 16 years of experience as an equity analyst will provide our clients with unique insight gained from diversified resources companies, mid-tier miners and emerging companies, and strong global relationships throughout the sector.
“Stephanie has diverse experience and is passionate about partnering with growing listed companies and assisting their Boards and management teams to build equity market support for their companies. She will provide sound counsel leading Market Eye’s Sydney team as it continues to rapidly grow.”
Ronn also thanked Orla for her contribution: “We’re sorry to see Orla leave and wish her all the best in her future endeavours. She has been a valuable member of our senior leadership group since joining four years ago and has played a key role in building our Sydney team and client base.”
Craig has a Bachelor of Engineering (Geological) from RMIT and Diploma in Financial Markets from The Securities institute of Australia, while Stephanie has an MBA from UTS, Sydney.
