Managing Partner

Samviv, Inc.



Austin, Texas - United States




“Genetically disruptive” Senior Executive with a “can do” attitude and a track record to match. After a reaffirming sabbatical (following the sale of a firm I owned) I am itching for my next big challenge. I bring a history of disruption and a wealth of achievement in P&L management, operations, finance, strategic planning, M&A, and business development. Still hungry after 25+ years of toil across a broad spectrum of industries, I have the drive and seasoning to identify strategic issues, dramatically improve sales, administer the organization, raise capital, and improve processes. Having served as CEO, CFO, COO, and Management Consultant, my ability to frame problems, leading to creative yet practical solutions, has led me to be commended as a trusted advisor, whose insight is sought beyond normal expectations. By nurturing a collaborative culture, I have shepherded companies to the next level, no matter if they are in start-up, rapid-growth, harvest, or turnaround mode. I have, literally, made a career of opportunistically finding, then exploiting voids. For additional details, see Representative Achievements, below.
