Jessica Murray has broken records at PeerStreet, becoming the fastest-promoted person in the company’s history. In January 2017, she was promoted from head of corporate communications to vice president of strategy for the company, an investment platform that enables accredited investors to easily invest in high-yield real estate loans.
Murray established PeerStreet’s voice on social media, blog, customer communications and placed media channels and she built out all marketing, social, communications and internal press channels. Murray is now managing new business and capital markets, utilizing her previous experience at J.P. Morgan as a commercial mortgage-backed securities trader.
Murray was responsible for PeerStreet’s communications through the company’s 2016 $15 million Series A funding round, led by Andreessen Horowitz. Her efforts resulted in more than 50 press articles in 2016 and millions of investment dollars added in the platform within the year.
WHAT'S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
“Never wear flip flops to work.” Advice your mom gives you is often the advice that actually sticks with you. Given I work at a startup not too far from the beach, flip flops definitely do make their appearance! But I took this insight as more than a professional fashion tip. I come to work each day focused on the quality of my work, my team, my clients and hold myself to a high level of professionalism.
