Charlene Ochoa

Senior Executive Assistant

I joined Versant Capital Management in 2013 and serve as Senior Executive Assistant, supporting the president and chief investment officer, the chief executive officer, and some of the management team. I have 25 years of administrative experience and am responsible for enhancing the firm’s executive support effectiveness.

Before joining Versant, I worked as an executive assistant at GenSpring Family Office (formerly Inlign Wealth Management) supporting the Director of Investment Operations in her director role and relationship manager role assisting with client service and investment operations processes. I also supported an operations team and other account managers, including trading and audits. Before that, I worked in human resources at Universal Technical Institute, Ping, Inc., and BHP Copper Inc. (formerly Magma Copper Co.).

I’m a graduate of the University of Arizona (go, Cats!) and hold a degree in General Business. I’m an Arizona native, and, with my husband Alex, stay busy caring for our son, Ben. I love all sports, especially watching the Arizona Diamondbacks. I am a person of strong faith and am active in our church. Close to my heart is the March of Dimes March for Babies and RESOLVE’s Walk of Hope, which I participate in annually. In 2022 I will be competing in The National Kidney Foundation’s “Dancing with the Stars Arizona” competition to help raise funds for people experiencing kidney issues. It’s salsa time!​
