Chad Fooshee

Founder & CEO

 Chad has over 25 years of experience in advisory and consulting capacity management and in general management, senior leadership, and project management roles for banks, broker-dealers, asset management firms, and others in the financial services industry.  He has spent most of his time solving problems or creating value for organizations that had written and communicated a vision, and delivered high-level products and services, but had so many goals and organizational channels that the people responsible for getting the work done had their attention shifted away from the company’s greater purpose.  Chad’s approach to creating incremental value is the same as his approach to solving problems.  Keep your eyes fixed on the future you believe in and never compromise on core values – whether climbing a mountain, standing strong for faith and family, or building a legendary company.
