Growthink names new director of strategy

Growthink, an advisory and investment banking firm based in Los Angeles, announced Tuesday that Emily Burg, the co-founding partner and principal of Linea Capital, has joined Growthink as director of strategy. She will be splitting her time between the firm's Los Angeles and San Diego offices, a firm spokesman said.

“Emily’s experience as a private equity innovator, advisor to emerging companies and astute observer of imperative trends within business and capital markets make her an stellar addition to our team, as we highlight our position as the leading strategic advisory and investment banking firm to emerging and middle market enterprises,” said Jay Turo, Growthink’s Founder and CEO.

Burg recently served as principal of Linea Capital, the first investment fund providing capital and advisory services to emerging financial, media and consumer companies serving the U.S. Hispanic market. Burg specialized in raising Series A, B and expansion capital and sourced deals up to $20 million. She also advised private equity and hedge funds about emerging market opportunities and directed Linea’s business development efforts.

Prior to Linea, Burg was a regular financial news commentator for CNNfn and CNBC Networks and served as a senior editor of The Deal, a weekly news publication that covers Wall Street deal making.
