I was never actively hunting for a role but had spoken to multiple recruiters over the years who were aware of my background and aspirations. In my brief moment where I said I’d consider outside opportunities because my partnership admission date was pushed back by six months, they offered a GM/MD level role at a former client which was perfect for me.
