Senior Associate, Special Situations

New York, NY / Remote (Hybrid)

Who We Are

C Street is a fast-growing strategic advisory firm helping CEOs meet the moment. We partner with business leaders to position them at the forefront of the evolving corporate world, where they are driving change rather than reacting to it. With deep expertise across Corporate Advisory; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI); Talent; and Communications & Public Affairs, we help our clients build more inclusive, equitable, and valuable organizations. 

 

In connection with our launch in September 2021, DealBook called C Street “a new type of advisory firm,” Axios described us as a “strategy firm to help CEOs avoid getting ‘canceled,’” and WSJ highlighted that we focus on “helping companies boost diversity and inclusion efforts and manage controversies.”
