Jim Douglass joins Fulcrum Equity Partners

Jim Douglass has joined Fulcrum Equity Partners as partner.

He will work closely with the fund’s existing portfolio companies and will also develop new investment opportunities.
Douglass brings more than 25 years of operations management, strategic development and financial experience with high-growth companies, particularly in the financial services, marketing services and healthcare industries.
He was most recently chief executive of Vesdia, a pioneer in card-linked marketing for financial services, airline and hospitality companies, which merged with Cartera Commerce in January 2011. He still serves on Cartera’s board of directors. Prior to Vesdia, he served as CEO for Atlanta-based Visionary Systems, a provider of decision systems for credit providers and retailers that was acquired by Trans Union in 2004. Douglass also served as chief financial officer at CheckFree Corporation, helping it grow to over USD500m in revenue. He began his career with KPMG in its financial services practice.
"We’ve known Jim for over 20 years and have enjoyed watching his career develop and blossom," says Fulcrum founding partner Jeff Muir. "We place a strong emphasis on surrounding ourselves and our companies with individuals of the highest calibre, and we’re certain that Jim will be a tremendous addition to our team."
"I’m excited to be joining Fulcrum – they’ve built a strong reputation as high quality, value-added investors," says Douglass. "The substantial operating experience of both the partners and investor group makes Fulcrum the standout choice for many entrepreneurs."
