Joanna Peters is a Principal of Mary Fifield Associates based in New York. She brings a proven track record as a global strategic thinker to build outs and turnarounds. Using her law degree and business expertise, she has originated strategic businesses with an investor focus and created an institutional standard for cross border and emerging markets transactions.
Ms. Peters has built and undertaken workarounds in the emerging markets (India, Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East) for leading diversified financial institutions including Citigroup, ABN and AMEX. She has driven rollups in Asia and the United States and has acted as adviser and interim COO on new private equity ventures in the offshore oil and gas sectors. Her other activities include strategic positioning, acquisition due diligence, development of new distribution capabilities via strategic alliances and open architecture platforms for investment firms and offshore institutional investors.
She has specialized expertise in advising firms on a wide spectrum of business management matters including strategic positioning, Investor Relations, all aspects of fiduciary responsibility and best practices in corporate governance, and operational efficiencies leading to improved performance.
Her focus is firms looking to reach the next level of institutional and business readiness as well as firms looking to reconfigure their business structure. Country start ups and turnarounds have all called for extensive governance re-design in both the domestic and international contexts. Joanna is experienced with Fortune 100 boards as well as governance for entrepreneurial ventures.
Ms. Peters is a Best Practice Industry Speaker here and abroad. She sits on the Advisory Board of the Princeton Committee on Foreign Relations. She is a Senior Member of Arab Bankers Association (ABANA) and Membership Co Chair of the Asia Hands Group.

Prior to that time, she served four years on the Board of a New York City magnet school, Stuyvesant High School. Joanna is admitted to the Bar in Australia as well as in New York.
