President & Chief Operating Officer
I am responsible for guiding the Company’s vision and strategy in addition to overseeing all aspects of operations. I bring over 20 years of experience successfully growing and leading companies. I joined Royalty Clearinghouse in August of 2013. I have had a long standing relationship with the owners, and I am grateful to join the company.
I am passionate about delivering a high-quality customer experience to our clients. Leading with a client service mindset, our goal is to honor your choices through the sales process. The Royalty Clearinghouse team stands out from the rest of the industry, and we look forward to serving you, educating you and delivering value to you.
Prior to joining Royalty Clearinghouse, I was Chief Operating Officer for one of the leading prepaid debit card programs in the United States in which I led private equity financings totaling $17.5 million.
From 2003 to 2010, I served as Chief Financial Officer of American Physicians Service Group (NASDAQ: AMPH). This was an excellent opportunity and professional experience for me. I orchestrated the conversion of our insurance subsidiary into a stock company, including a $40 million public offering. In late 2010, I successfully completed the acquisition of AMPH to ProAssurance (NYSE:PRA) for $250 million. As a result of the collective efforts of my team, I was proud to be recognized as “Public Company CFO of Year” by the Austin Business Journal.
I earned my undergraduate degree in accounting in1991 from Baylor University and then received my my MBA in 2002 from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University . I am also a CPA.
I am active in a number of organizations in the Austin community including Tarrytown United Methodist Church. When not working, I enjoy playing golf, cheering on my son in sports and my daughter in competitive dance and being a Baylor Bear and Houston professional sports team fan. I have been married to Ashley since 2000 and have two adolescent children.
