One of the unique aspects of the investor relations profession is that its practitioners come from a wide diversity of backgrounds, including finance, research, communications and program management. Further, the responsibilities of IR professionals typically require engagement across and contributions to a broad array of disciplines within an organization. As such, some view IR as a stepping stone to senior roles in other disciplines with the goal of ultimately moving to the C-suite; others decide to remain on the IR ladder for their full career. Come hear from two seasoned IROs and an accomplished executive recruiter as we discuss career management for IR professionals. Our panelists will discuss how to navigate your career within - and potentially beyond - IR.
