Today, we are very excited to announce that we are adding Jeff Browning to the team at Next Coast Ventures. Jeff is joining our team as a Venture Partner where he will focus on helping our portfolio companies with all aspects of organizational design, talent acquisition and executive development. Jeff’s addition to our team underscores our relentless focus on building out a firm with a continual thesis around how can we bring the best and brightest minds to the entrepreneurs that we serve.
Jeff has 30 years experience in executive talent acquisition across multiple industry sectors and company sizes ranging from startups to the Fortune 100.
