Specialties and Background
Most recently Gene served as the CFO for an RFID software company (TrackX, Inc.), where he developed the financial infrastructure to grow the company, from pre-revenue to $5 million plus in revenue. The company was able to obtain several rounds of equity capital of $7 million and an additional debt financing to enable this rapid growth and set the company up for a strategic merger and successful exit for the original VC investors. The company went public on the Toronto Venture Exchange (TSXV) through an RTO raising over $10M in capital through both debt and equity instruments.
Prior to TrackX, Gene served as Chief Financial Officer for Rainbow Rewards, an e-commerce and web business deriving primary revenues from POS credit card transactions where he created a financing plan that included foreign Letters of Credit and Convertible Notes in an Australian holding company and worked on pre-IPO funding to go public on the Australian Exchange in 18 months.
Gene holds a MBA in Finance and Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Colorado.
In his free time, Gene enjoys golf, snow shoeing, cooking and spoiling his grandchildren.
