Jay joins Propeller with over 18 years of experience as a finance professional. Previously, he ran finance for Dropoff, a venture-backed same-day delivery company based in Austin. At Dropoff, Jay worked on everything from KPI reporting to M&A. Prior to that, he was a senior analyst investing in high yield fixed income securities for Investcorp Credit Management and its predecessor companies. He started his career at Goldman Sachs, working in corporate, advisory and investing roles at the firm.
He has an undergraduate degree from NYU Stern with a double major in Finance and Information Systems, an MBA from Columbia Business School, and is a CFA Charterholder.
Jay is kept busy outside of work chasing after his two (very energetic) kids, snowboarding, and running. Jay and his wife love traveling internationally and are looking forward to dragging their children along now that they are a little older.
