30 IR stars in 30 days: Valerie Haertel
IR Magazine has a long history of honoring those men, women and companies around the world that excel at investor relations. In celebration of 30 years of IR Magazine, we selected 30 IR stars that have shone particularly brightly over the past three decades and will be posting one profile each day for 30 days, giving you the gift of an IR advent calendar.
Valerie Haertel has held senior investor relations positions at BNY Mellon – where she served as global head of IR until recently – State Street, Medco Health Solutions and AllianceBernstein. She also served as the NIRI board chair during 2017, playing an influential role in working with an executive search firm to identify Gary LaBranche as the new president and CEO of the institute.
Speaking to IR Magazine in 2016, Haertel said: ‘I love the strategic aspects best: problem-solving, peer analysis and messaging. I enjoy being a part of the leadership team and having access at all levels of the organization to current and future strategic plans and financials.’
