I am both proud and humbled by what we’ve created with our investors and portfolio companies since co-founding TCV. The values we defined at the start made it possible to build a distinct culture and approach to growth investing.

Rick has been a venture capitalist and technology investor for 40 years. He and Jay Hoag co-founded TCV in 1995. Since that time TCV has raised over $17 billion in capital and has become a leading provider of growth capital to technology companies. Rick has been recognized by Forbes on its Midas List several times as one of the industry’s top technology investors.

Prior to TCV, Rick was a Managing Director at Montgomery Securities, where he spent more than 10 years focusing on telecommunications and data communications as a venture capitalist and senior equity research analyst. Rick’s research received number one institutional rankings from Greenwich Associates and “Home Run Hitter” accolades from Institutional Investor Magazine.

Rick currently serves on the Board of Trustees at the University of California, San Francisco. He chairs the Audit, Compliance and Risk Management Committee and sits on both the Executive and Development Committees. He serves on the Board of the Ohana Foundation in Kona, HI, and chairs its Investment Committee. Previously Rick served on the Dartmouth College Board of Trustees (2012-2020). He chaired the Investment Committee and was a member of both the Audit/Oversight and Resources committees. He Co-Chaired Dartmouth College’s “Call to Lead” $3.8 Billion Capital Campaign.
