Randy Dewey has over 30 years of experience delivering rapid growth and expansion in many different countries worldwide. He assisted Blackstone with many turnarounds to successful seven-figure exits in the first half of his career. In the second half of his CEO career, he worked in a private family office environment and within the public markets. The organizations ranged from start-ups to $750M in revenue.

He has led companies from a strategic perspective, with a clear focus on cash flow and re-investment to be a catalyst for growth and sustainability. Randy has raised several hundred million dollars in debt and equity financing and participated in 15 M&A transactions.

  • Capital and Financial Partnerships – Kept the capital plan and financial foundation solid and sustainable as a critical stakeholder in businesses. Raised several hundred million dollars in debt and equity, combined with exceptional financial performance that has created over $1.8B in new corporate value.
