Viridian’s Executive-in-Residence Program

To further Viridian Investment Partner’s interest in the identification of investment opportunities in industry segments experiencing dynamic growth, Viridian initiated our Executive-in-Residence (EIR) program in early 2009, where we partner with proven, entrepreneurial CEOs to pursue value-creation opportunities in segments of mutual interest.

Viridian proactively seeks to buy and build companies in markets where our principals and executive partners have deep experience. We have found that successful investments require an intimate understanding of the industry before we refine the investment thesis or find an initial target entry point.

We work closely with our executive partners by assisting with deal flow, supporting the recruitment of their team, driving due diligence efforts, refining investment and business strategy, and providing extensive transaction expertise. Our first EIR, Woody Pastorius, has been successful in both large and small company environments. He has a blend of deep operating experience, entrepreneurial leadership and spirit, and has spent over twenty years in the information technology space.
