DWT Food + Bev

Jisoo Kim


Hometown: Ridgewood, N.J.

What’s your sweet spot as it relates to this industry? M&A and early stage financings.

What was your favorite food as a kid? Clementines.

If you couldn’t be a lawyer, what would you be? A travel writer with a budget to experience both hosteling and 5-star-hoteling and the ability to choose my own itinerary.

Why is food/bev/ag your chosen industry? Growing up, experiencing home-grown cuisine, often close to its source, was a big focus of my family’s travels—many of my best childhood memories come from countless road trips across the US and abroad to try southern BBQ, Chinese food, all matters of seafood, stinky cheeses, you name it. Food is an important touchstone in my personal life, and it informs my professional endeavors. Food + bev clients are passionate about their businesses, their products and their vision and I find that inspiring.

What book or song inspires you the most, and why? I’m going to answer a different question and say: Some books (in no particular order) that inspire me are by Michael Chabon, P.G. Wodehouse, and Marvel Comics.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? Everywhere.
