Managing Member, XMi High Growth Opportunity Fund

I’ve focused on supporting entrepreneurial companies over a 26 year career. Today, XMI supports the success of small growth oriented businesses through providing a portfolio of business infrastructure services designed to help focus each entrepreneur on revenue development activities and its competitive advantages. Experience indisputably demonstrates that when CEOs focus exclusively on the right things (revenue development, product development, and people development), their organizations outperform. As a result, XMI provides a comprehensive growth platform to businesses and non-profit organizations to accomplish goals faster, and with less money.

In addition to helping our client organizations thrive through our growth platform, my personal business passion includes helping businesses make the right strategic decisions regarding new capital investment, making an acquisition, selling a division, or cashing in at the right time after the hard work of job creation.

I began at XMI in 2002 as the Director of Corporate Finance, before becoming Chief Financial Officer, and ultimately Chief Executive Officer. Prior to XMI, I managed a boutique business advisory firm and was a founder in a small business investment company sponsored through the Small Business Administration. While in graduate school, I founded a small business consulting business focused on assisting local CEOs.

I graduated with a MBA from the Owen School at Vanderbilt University and earned a bachelor degree in Management and Psychology from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA.

I have the honor of serving the following organizations at the board level:

Outside of work, my wife and three children keep me grounded.  So my weekends are increasingly spent at soccer games and birthday parties.
