Having delivered deals in 11 countries, with both public and private targets, she has demonstrated expertise in navigating the varied requirements, risks, and cultural norms for deals on the global landscape.
She is a hands-on transaction leader with proven experience with all facets of the deal life cycle including strategic evaluation, design of risk and opportunity focused diligence investigations, management of large cross-functional diligence teams, development of deal business cases and valuation models, negotiation of Letters of Intent, Deal Agreements, and Transition Service Agreements, and integration strategy, planning, and oversight.
Most recently, Wendy was the Manager of Global Business Development for Allegion, where she led engagements in Asia Pacific and Europe/Middle East, developed/optimized their enterprise standard M&A process, and built global functional capabilities.

She is adept at developing/optimizing skilled Corp.

Her ability to teach both the “hows” and “whys” of effective M&A is key to her building effective and engaged deal teams.
