Our Founder – Paulina Fin Caprio
Paulina believes culture is both the biggest accelerator or impediment to a company’s ability to execute well. She created Chrysalis to focus on culture after working on change initiatives and mergers which experienced roadblocks because companies were constrained by an outdated culture that held them back.
With additional pressures from a global pandemic and growing calls for equality in the workplace, the time for Chrysalis is now.
Prior to Chrysalis, Paulina was a business transformation and change advisor practicing innovative forms of change management, incorporating user experience, design thinking and agile methodology into her approach. She is sought out for her passion for improving the change experience and for building long-term culture change.
In addition, Paulina has over 20 years of experience in M&A, from investment banking advisory, to M&A arbitrage/trading, to selling companies in bankruptcy, to M&A integration and culture change. With 10+ years in finance, Paulina helps companies measure the financial and operational impacts of culture change initiatives to ensure they are successful.
Paulina lives in Chicago, originally coming to Canada from Russia as a political refugee with her family. She has an Honours B. Sc. in Neuropsychology from the University of Toronto and the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) designation.
