Responding to Demand for Emerging Market Services, Consulting Firm Expands and Deepens Expertise

WASHINGTON, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Responding to an increase in demand for emerging market services in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, Inle Advisory Group recently announced the formation of its Advisory Board.

To form the Board, Inle founder Erin Murphy brought on experts with backgrounds in investment banking, cultural anthropology, agriculture, human rights, and non-profit development.

“An increasing number of companies realize that the benefits of being a first mover in emerging markets are significant. But these markets will inevitably mature and become competitive,” Murphy explained. “Now is the time for companies to plan, build relationships, and begin operating in these emerging and frontier markets, and our board is uniquely qualified to lay the critical groundwork for our clients.”

The Board brings a mix of Wall Street and development experience and includes Peter Gaudet, President of Campfire Capital, an SDVOSB investment bank; Bert Laurent, an agricultural anthropologist with more than thirty years of senior management experience throughout Africa and the Caribbean; Tom Malinowski, former US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor; and Sandee Pyne, Chief Executive Officer of Community Partners International (CPI).

According to Gaudet, who worked across a vast spectrum of asset classes and markets over two decades in the institutional investment space, noted, there are new and growing opportunities in these regions, especially in energy, telecom, infrastructure, and the financial services industry. “Our clients,” he said, “stand to realize significant returns on investment and make a positive impact for years to come.”

“The Board Members understand what motivates investors and what causes them to pause. There’s no way to short-cut this work, and the right experts must be involved,” Murphy said. “Our team is unmatched.”
