With more than 15 years of experience in investor relations, finance and business development, Engman most recently served as the SVP of Investor Relations at Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ: HST), the nation’s largest lodging real estate investment trust, where she was responsible for transforming the company’s Investor Relations function. During her time there, Engman helped Host navigate an unprecedented downturn in lodging last year, gain market share and opportunistically acquire assets to accelerate EBITDA* growth through the pandemic recovery.
Prior to Host, Engman led the Investor Relations team at Washington Real Estate Investment Trust (WashREIT) as Vice President, and was deeply involved in decision-making across accounting, tax, capital markets, and financial reporting. In addition, she played an instrumental role in executing a follow-on public offering of approximately 4.6 million shares for gross proceeds of approximately $130 million.
Engman transitioned to Investor Relations following a decade of institutional equity research sales experience while at Citigroup, JPMorgan, and Deutsche Bank – where she gained insight into how investors evaluate public companies, capital markets transactions, and the effectiveness of management teams.
“DoubleVerify has clearly proven its category leadership in terms of product innovation, new customer growth and global expansion,” said Engman. “I’m thrilled to join such a trusted and valued company, and look forward to applying my experience and leadership to help accelerate DV’s growth, while protecting the integrity and reputation of the organization.”
