Description

Mr. Morris Wheeler is the Founder and serves as Principal at Drummond Road Capital. He also served as Co-Chairman at VersaFlex. He serves as Board Member at Expensebot. Over the past decade, he has managed diverse venture capital and private equity portfolio and served as Chairman and CEO of Cohesant, a company providing solutions that extend the life of aging water infrastructure. During his operating tenure, Cohesant's investors enjoyed a 28% annualized return culminating with a sale to Graco Inc. in 2008. Following that sale, Drummond Road retained an interest in Raven Linings Systems, which was sold to VersaFlex, a Dalfort portfolio company, in December 2017. He joined Dalfort soon thereafter and serves on the board of VersaFlex. Earlier in his career, he specialized in software and digital media. From there, as CEO and Founder, he led the team that created the first internet music distribution platform with the founders of MTV, Island Records and Gateway Computers. Sputnik7 was acquired by a major media company in early 2000. Most recently, he has focused on making 10 to 12 value-added seed-stage investments per year in software companies participating in top national accelerator programs like TechStars, 500 Startups, Y-Combinator, and The Brandery. Drummond Road Capital has been recognized as one of the 100 most active startup investors in the US. He began his career on Wall Street after studying Economics and Computer Science at The University of Massachusetts at Amherst and earned his JD at Yale Law School. He served as a Board member at Within3.
