The IR Magazine Think Tank – West Coast II 2018 is an invitation-only event exclusively for senior corporate, in-house IR professionals. It is free to attend and our unique format enables participants to network extensively, discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting today’s IROs.
What makes our format so unique?
It is far removed from the traditional conference set-up as the event consists of a series of panel sessions followed by roundtable discussions on select IR issues. These interactive sessions are broken up by short, snappy best practice briefings from top-rated IROs. All discussions are confidential and none of the participants’ comments are attributed. This allows attendees to talk freely and have frank, open discussions.
How do our roundtable discussions work?
Senior people – industry experts, top-rated IROs and those from the financial community – set the agenda on a panel discussion by sharing their thoughts on session topics.
Small roundtable groups of IROs discuss these issues face to face.
Each table gives feedback from its own discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.

Smooch Repovich Reynolds
Managing director, global investor relations and chief communications officer practice group
Smooch Repovich Reynolds joined ZRG Partners at the end of 2017, bringing with her a career that spans more than 25 years of executive search consulting, specifically focused in the Global Investor Relations Officer and Chief Communications Officer functional areas. Smooch pioneered IR executive search as a direct result of her affinity for the capital markets, and has partnered with CEOs and CFOs to address corporate valuation issues and financial market expectations throughout her career. As the profession and financial markets have evolved dramatically the last two decades, she has served as a key influencer of the direction of the Investor Relations profession through her stewardship with client management teams.
In addition, her thought leadership in the Corporate Communications functional niche has been framed by her tenure as a former Chief Communications Officer and her broad participation in the global communications community. Smooch has leveraged this first-hand experience to partner with leadership teams providing guidance by framing corporate communications functions, and by serving as a gateway to exceptional talent whose corporate brand innovation experience has elevated her client companies to new heights of success.
She is considered a leading authority on the intangible leadership traits that define talent who are recognized as part of the top 10% of Investor Relations and Chief Communications Officers globally. Her executive search experience has spanned partnerships with management teams and Boards at organizations ranging in size from pre-IPO entities to global, multinational Fortune 500 market leaders, across all industry sectors.
Having completed approximately 300 Investor Relations Officer searches, one consideration to note about Smooch’s work is the increase in her clients’ share valuation during her tenure as a recruitment management team advisor – nearly $500B in increased valuation that she has contributed to as a direct result of her commitment to clients on the topic of recruiting the right talent.
Smooch has authored numerous thought leadership articles about the CEO-CFO-IRO triumvirate and the impact of their interlocked relationship as it relates to the investment community and valuation. She has been the featured expert on IRO and CCO careers across traditional media and social/digital media, and is called upon by numerous professional groups to speak on wide ranging talent and leadership topics.

In addition, she served as the Chief Communications Officer for The Irvine Company, a recognized national privately-held real estate development company. And, prior to that she was the Founder and CEO of The Repovich-Reynolds Group, a North American focused executive search firm specializing in IRO and CCO search assignments which she led for nearly 20 years.
