Nikki is a first generation Korean-American, born and raised in Fairfax, VA. His up bringing was guided by his hard working, multi-generational family who own and operate their own business. While many first generation Korean-Americans choose not to learn the Korean language, or only understand it at a basic level, Nikki can read and write in both Korean and Japanese (he studied at GMU), which facilitates some interesting conversations when out for bulgoki or sushi.
A recent George Mason University alum, graduating in spring 2016 with a BS in Finance and a BS in Information Systems and Operations Management, Nikki worked on several projects throughout his academia to include mock valuations using several case studies provided by the Harvard Business School. He is well versed in valuation models including: the DCF model, market multiples, residual income approach, and asset approach. All of his training and education is now literally paying off at Quantive where he is on staff as a valuation analyst.
Outside of work, Nikki enjoys kayaking, fishing, cooking, and spending time with friends. He resides in Woodbridge and enjoys commuting to McLean.
