In starting Melius, the biggest to-do on my list was to lever the benefit of independence to reconnect with the best of the best, and not just in the industrial world. Successful and/or retired CEO/CFOs, leading board members, top investment bankers, Washington insiders, private equity and VC leaders, proven investors, and a few of the smartest up-and-comers that we cross paths with. And we want to add more women/minorities to the list to widen the perspective. If we can connect the dots from these folks, the output should be exceptional. Anyway, that’s the context, and our first “smartest man” piece from Melius is here.
