Who We are

Mary Kate Pennington

Chief Financial Officer

Mary Kate brings a wealth of experience in venture capital and the alternative investment fund industry, including financial reporting guidance and operational expertise.

Her experience spans fund administration, audit/tax, and in-house finance.

Before her time at Aduro, she worked at a private equity firm, where she was responsible for all aspects of financial reporting and investment valuations. The foundation of her career was established during her seven-year tenure at PwC, where she conducted audits of institutional investment firms.
