I have been very blessed with a great family, wonderful friends, amazing mentors, and a highly successful career. I truly had it all, but something was missing in the later years of my tenure as a senior partner with a Big 4 firm. My passion was no longer driven by financial reward, but rather improving the outcomes associated with major societal issues that I believe could be solved by non-traditional thinking and the added benefit of rapidly evolving and disruptive technology.
After submitting my early retirement request, I began to meet a number of people who were not formerly in my professional or social circles. I also had the opportunity to support a colleague who happened to be an alumni of Oral Roberts University (ORU). This individual then connected me to leaders at ORU who are truly changing the world. One introduction led to another and another. My life was changed in a way that remains inexplicable to me this very day. There is zero doubt to me that this was, as they say, a “God Thing.”
I would pray often, consult with people about my age, and talk with my family about what I was doing to better serve God’s kingdom. I found that I was not alone in trying to discover what to do in the fourth quarter of life, as I encountered many whom also shared a passion to improve outcomes of society by utilizing their respective talents and experience.
The vision became clear – create an organization that facilitates the collaboration of people of faith, professional & technical experience, and like-minded companies, to develop technology and provide consulting services focused on improving the outcomes in addressing the country’s most complex social challenges. Then, instill and execute such a company in a manner that prioritizes a set of core values that are focused on improving outcomes through collaboration, and in a manner that achieves next level performance, giving back and helping clients achieve success.
This is SOAR Partners.
