Summit Executive Resources

For over ten years, Summit Executive Resources has been disrupting the retained executive search industry — and improving how C-level executives advance their careers or access to board directorship opportunities.

Unlike traditional search, they represent the executive — much like the way a sports agent represents a star athlete. Their model works by connecting our clients with the hiring companies, boards of directors, and private equity and venture capital firms that need their leadership.

Whether you are an established business or a startup, if your goal is to get to a liquidity event, engage in sustained profitable growth or to raise needed capital, I may be the right coach for you. I have developed the needed skills to help company owners and CEOs over several decades as a C-suite operator and financier of dozens of companies. I started (or bought), built and sold two companies. I managed four venture capital firms (founded two of them) with combined capital under management exceeding $500 million. I successfully managed nine companies through periods of disruption in their growth. I have been a highly influential director of 26 for-profits (private and public) and non-profit organizations.
