Co-Founder & EVP/Managing Director - Investments
Vincent is responsible for originating, due diligence, structuring and monitoring of Sunrise Strategic Partners’ investments. Prior to co-founding Sunrise Strategic Partners, Vincent spent 10 years in investment banking at Citigroup, focused on the consumer and retail sectors. Representative advisory transactions include Boulder Brands acquisitions of Udi’s Healthy Foods and Glutino Food Group, Colgate-Palmolive Company’s acquisition of the Sanex brand, the sale of Peet’s Coffee & Tea and the initial public offering and split-off of Mead Johnson Nutrition. Prior to Citigroup, Vincent spent three years working in Scotia Capital’s Mergers and Acquisitions Group. Vincent received a Master of Business Administration from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business. Vincent currently serves on the boards of Kill Cliff, Kodiak Cakes, Maple Hill Creamery, PACT Organic and Pure Growth Organic.
Steve and Vince met in 2005 on a hair-raising cab ride from Barcelona to Madrid, over the Pyrenees Mountains and through a driving rain storm, finally arriving at one of the first investor meetings on Boulder Brands. A long story they laugh about now - and an experience that formed a one of a kind partnership.
