Fred joined Horsley Bridge Partners in 1995 after serving as the firm's general counsel for 12 years. He started his career at the law firm of Nixon, Hargrave, Devans & Doyle, a predecessor of Nixon Peabody LLP, where he served as its Managing Director for five years. During his time at Nixon Hargrave, in what was later termed his "sabbatical", Fred was an executive officer of a venture-funded startup, Empire Airlines, that became a public company.
Outside of work, Fred can be found hacking up a golf course or searching for interesting new artists or a great bottle of wine. An extensive travel schedule provides ample opportunities to connect with his three east coast-based children and two grandchildren (though he refuses to be referred to as a grandfather!)firstname.lastname@example.org
