Most people think of Aspen as fur coats, Gucci, and the line of private jets alongside highway 82. While there’s a lot of that in the Roaring Fork Valley, there are also the people who built it: ski patrolman, teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, and more. It’s a dynamic community of people with fascinating backgrounds and unique ways of life. I grew up immersed in the valley’s “Characters Welcome” mantra and have been energized from an early age by cultivating deep relationships with individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and ways of life.
After graduating from the University of Denver, I was drawn to a career that professors described as the language of business. As a CPA at PwC, I worked closely with real estate investment clients navigating complex tax laws and pursuing better outcomes for their businesses. I became accustomed to running efficient processes and embracing the attention to detail that is required from accountants day in and day out.
Years later at MG Stover, we were pioneering fund administration for new investment strategies and fund structures. Managing strategic partnerships, I worked directly with both the CEO and Head of Business Development. What drew me to MG Stover was the high-caliber leadership, anchored in being good people who strived to deliver the best results for their clients.
Today, as I walk my two young boys through the archway of their school each morning, I’m often reminded, through the mission statement on the gate “empowering global citizens to reach their potential,” of the duty we have in supporting our entrepreneurs. At Delta-v, we partner with companies at an incredibly pivotal time in their journey: the growth phase, which is characterized by mastering scale and unlocking potential.
Fostering meaningful relationships that create value and unlock potential is core to our success. I’m continually energized by our approach of being true partners to the entrepreneurs we back, to our incredible LPs, and to each other.
