Q & A

  • Q: Trust. Experience. Independence. Results. What does this mean to you?

    We strive to be good stewards of the businesses we partner with and our investors. Owners trust us to be partners with them in the companies they have built, and we are focused on maintaining their legacy.  This requires us to generate reasonable returns so that we can reinvest in our communities and employees and make smart long-term decisions.

  • Q: What drives you?

    Building long term relationships of trust throughout the broader community.

  • Q: What are you passionate about?

    Together with my wife, I am passionate about raising our kids to be quality human beings. I am passionate about making the Seattle area and the Pacific Northwest an even better place to live through active community engagement.
