Tim Einwechter – Partner
Tim’s previous positions have fortunately never limited his exposure to strictly the finance side of the business, making him an unconventional Chief Financial Officer. In fact, Tim says the best compliment he receives is that he is unlike any other CFO. Previous Healthcare positions have provided Tim with exposure to operations, sales, marketing, production, regulatory, quality and investments. This experience lends itself to Tim being a key member of the Fund’s management team and led him to be named the 2010 Private Company CFO of the Year in Arizona by the Financial Executives Institute.
