Angie Kim
President & Chief Customer Officer,
EqualFooting.com
President & Chief Customer Officer,
EqualFooting.com

Angie immigrated to Baltimore from Seoul, South Korea, with her parents in the early 1980s. As a teenager, she helped her parents to build and grow a variety of small retail businesses throughout the Baltimore area, and experienced first-hand the challenges of starting and running small businesses.

Angie attended college at Stanford University, where she graduated with Highest Honors and Distinction and was the Phi Beta Kappa graduation speaker. After the 1989 earthquake in the Bay Area, she returned to the East Coast to attend Harvard Law School. She was Editor of the Harvard Law Review for two years, and graduated magna cum laude. After law school, Angie clerked for Chief Judge Wilkinson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and then practiced law as a litigator with the Washington, D.C., law firm of Williams & Connolly.

Angie realized that she prefers building relationships and businesses to fighting with others about them. She transitioned to the business world by joining McKinsey & Co., where she quickly became an Engagement Manager and a member of the leadership group for the e-commerce practice at McKinsey & Co. In that role, Angie helped a financial institution client to build a new online business-to-business program that focuses on small businesses in the professional services segment. She has focused on other small business and marketing efforts, including helping a major direct marketing client to build alliance marketing and other alternative distribution channels capabilities and helping chemical industry clients to create value by consolidating smaller companies.

Jeff Hooke
Principal, Hooke Associates

Jeff Hooke is an independent investment banker based in Tysons Corner, Virginia.  He was formerly a New York-based investment banker with Lehman Brothers and Schroder Wertheim, respectively, where he worked on many mergers and acquisitions, public offerings, and private placements of debt and equity.  He has broad international experience through his work with Emerging Markets Partnership, a $4 billion merchant banking fund, and the International Finance Corporation, a World Bank affiliate.

Mr. Hooke is the author of two books on corporate finance and investments: M&A, A Practical Guide to Doing the Deal (John Wiley & Sons, 1996) and Security Analysis on Wall Street (John Wiley & Sons, 1998).   He has appeared on MSNBC, CNN and PBS, and he has been quoted or featured in Barron's, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, Business Week, and Ticker.  Mr. Hooke has been an adjunct professor at the business schools of University of Maryland, Georgetown University, and George Washington University.

Mr. Hooke brings his Wall Street investment banking experience within the reach of small and medium-sized companies, venture funds, entrepreneurial start-ups, and regional accounting and legal firms.  His services fill a critical need in this dynamic market.  The financial advisory options of these firms are now restricted to (1) business brokers and private consultants, most of whom lack traditional Wall Street expertise; (2) regional investment / commercial banks that assign junior personnel to smaller transactions; and (3) New York securities firms, which avoid processing deals under $50 million.
