I have developed meaningful profitability measures and reporting for business leaders to keep attention on the bottom line. Over eight years as the vice president of finance in a software business, I enabled growth from $10M to $400M in revenue. As CFO, I led the turnaround from a $20M loss to break even by emphasizing sales and manufacturing.
I have raised capital for venture capital-backed, private equity-backed, and public markets companies. I have secured additional rounds of venture capital and venture debt. Under private equity ownership, I delivered on the first-year business commitments for the integration of three merged companies, which enabled the renegotiation of a $500M debt on favorable terms. In the public markets, I communicated with the SEC in completing an IPO and follow-on equity raise. I also raised capital from export credit agencies and banks for my Latin American customers.
I have developed M&A and due diligence expertise in multiple transactions, including leading the sale of a $350M business segment from a public company to a private equity firm. I have also completed acquisitions for product and regional expansions.
