Cherie has over 15 years in strategy and management consulting experience across a broad range of public and private sectors beginning her career at Towers Watson and Deloittes in Melbourne, Australia. After gaining a strong corporate foundation she moved from servicing global Fortune 500 companies, primarily international banks and pension funds to servicing the less fortunate billion individuals through World Vision, one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations. There she worked directly with the deputy CEO, at the office of strategy management to design, implement and review projects including benchmarking its International marketing campaigns and field operations.
As a Board member at Central Atlanta Progress, the Urban Land Institute and Church on the Street, Cherie continues to be driven by her passion for community development and entrepreneurship in Atlanta. At The Creations Group, a private equity international real estate investment fund based in Hong Kong with US headquarters in Atlanta, she combines her interest in the adaptive reuse of commercial properties with her desire to revitalize under-invested communities to bring about both economic value and social impact.
