Hannah Deresiewicz is a Managing Director and Team Lead at Stern IR, based in New York City. Since joining the firm in 2013, Hannah has had the privilege of working with companies of all shapes and sizes, across a wide variety of therapeutic areas including oncology, cardiovascular disease, renal/metabolic disease and other rare conditions. She has advised companies through an array of financing and strategic processes – crossover rounds, IPOs and follow-ons, as well as reverse mergers and multi-billion dollar acquisitions – and has shaped and implemented communications around clinical trial data, product approvals and launches, large-scale collaborations and corporate respositionings. Hannah’s favorite part of her job is getting to work closely and collaboratively with her clients, and she feels extremely lucky to learn from, and partner with, such a diverse group of industry professionals.
Within Stern IR, Hannah is responsible for leading our company-wide strategic initiatives and supporting the growth and development of our people, as well as writing our weekly “Beat on the Street” update emails.
Hannah graduated from Columbia University summa cum laude with a degree in Political Science and Sociology. Prior to joining Stern IR, Hannah interned for several summers at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and at UNICEF.
When she’s not working, Hannah can usually be found running up and down the West Side Highway or exploring Central Park, where she’s training for her next marathon, or hosting her friends for roof-top dinner parties.
