|About||TW TechVentures is dedicated to helping MSP business owners develop new offerings and channel vendors grow their MSP market share.|
I am a mentor and advisor to IT service companies and an investor in technology startups. I share my knowledge and experience with other business owners seeking to improve their service profitability and increase their company valuation. My approach is business model driven supported by metrics and best practices.
My background includes being a founder and CEO of a successful IT managed services and cloud provider that I started in 1993, sold twice and then exited in 2012. At that time our company was the largest managed services provider in Texas and listed as #42 worldwide of Managed Service Providers for 2011. I gained a lot of experience during this time relevant to evolving business models, M&A, performance optimization, staffing and managing hyper-growth.
As an active investor and member of the Central Texas Angel Network (CTAN) I review business plans for technology start ups seeking seed capital. I meet with and advise company founders and entrepreneurs to help them develop successful business models.
My community activities include guest speaker appearances at The University of Texas, local area organizations and national industry events and technology conferences on subjects ranging from entrepreneurship to industry best practices. As an established thought leader in the industry I am regularly invited to sit on advisory boards for prominent technology manufacturers and distributors.
My residence is in Austin, TX where I enjoy my life with family, friends and playing sax in a local blues band.
