Cal is relentlessly dedicated to understanding the companies and opportunities he works with and focuses his efforts on constructively supporting and bringing forward to the leadership team the ideas, resources, and people that will drive a business forward.
As general partner at ABS Capital, Cal has found compelling investments at the intersection of payments, people, wealth, health, and benefits — with a deep knowledge of how technology is impacting processes, transactions, and systems. Cal uses these insights to lead the firm’s health care investment efforts. Cal believes in the truth and transparency of data, and the clarity and simplification it creates when partnering with executives to optimize their business models and strategies for continued success. Building trust and working side-by-side, Cal’s humble approach of building partnerships on trust, empathy, and availability (with a big dash of humor) has allowed him to develop an extensive network that can be called upon at any time.
Prior to joining ABS Capital, Cal served as vice president in Deutsche Bank Alex. Brown’s Health Care Investment Banking Group. During this time, Cal developed a deep domain knowledge of health care growth companies, with a specific focus on health care information technology, services, and outsourcing companies.
