Christiane E. Byrnes

Research Manager

Christiane joined Choyce Peterson in 2010 with a background in corporate finance and executive search.  She has served several roles at Choyce Peterson as she learned the ropes of commercial real estate, and she currently heads up the research department.  

Prior to joining Choyce Peterson, Christiane worked with a local financial and accounting executive search firm to recruit all levels of financial employees to area businesses.  Christiane had worked for eight years previously in commercial finance roles with what was then Kraft Foods, Inc. and The Dannon Company. Here she held financial management roles for major consumer product lines.  She led cross-discipline teams to bring numerous new products to market, in providing financial analysis, budget management and volume forecasting methodology.

Christiane has been a major asset to the Choyce Peterson team, bringing her talents for organization and team leadership.   Her strong foundation in finance and analysis have given her a unique viewpoint when researching area companies for real estate prospects.

Christiane earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations and French from Tufts University.  She then went on to earn an M.B.A. in Finance and International Business from New York University.  

When she is not at work, Christiane can often be found volunteering at her children’s schools or with her daughter’s Girl Scout troop.  She has played the flute since childhood and currently performs with a local chamber orchestra.  Christiane is a life long resident of Fairfield County and currently resides in Darien with her husband and three children.
