Promoting Growth for Nature-based Solutions

With over 12 years’ experience leading Corporate Finance functions, I am passionate about helping Environmental companies grow their bottom line. Values and value need not be mutually exclusive. When I am not helping startups raise capital and acquire companies, I enjoy experiencing our planet’s wonders through a forest hike or a coral reef dive.

Testimonials

Testimonials

"I had the pleasure of working with Mac for 5 years at RES. During that time, Mac was a highly valued member of my team and contributed to significant value creation. The mitigation industry has many unique characteristics that make predicting financial outcomes more difficult than most industries. Mac developed extensive knowledge of these issues and utilizes this industry knowledge in his work. I would enthusiastically recommend Mac to anyone looking for help in M&A, market assessments, project modeling and FP&A."

David Joyce
Former CFO, RES

"I've worked closely with Mac, both as his colleague and his client. He has a breadth of knowledge and experience in the ecological restoration space and is my first call for strategic issues. His work product is exceptional and always delivers."
