She joins Avonhurst, a London-based political and legal advisory firm serving the needs of sophisticated capital, in January 2020, where she will lead the Global Political Strategy practice.

Earlier in her career she founded Eurasia Group’s financial markets research business, and was a senior adviser in the UK Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit.
Tina serves on the international advisory boards for Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, her alma mater, and the think tank Carnegie Europe.
