I am thrilled with the revival of the direct listings market and have relaunched Raney & Associated to provide my customized solutions that create, unlock, and enhance enterprise value and shareholder returns for growth stage brands!
As a Keirsey Rational, the Architect type, I have been fascinated with the growth component of value creation since my introduction to the economic theories on multinational corporations and foreign direct investments at Ohio State, where I was granted permission from the chairman of the economics department to enroll in graduate level courses and do independent research under his guidance on international trade and finance.
It was there that I also got my first exposure to brand awareness campaigns as the youngest and most senior political campaign manager for a statewide public relations firm specializing in corporate sponsored local elections, whose partners included the State Representative of the district for the State capital.
I am a Michigan MBA and gained my first exposure to investment banking during my summer internship in Los Angeles. I was lucky to begin my post MBA career in the vanguard of two industries. Not only was I originating the biggest private placement mandates in the country and selling them to offshore hedge funds, I sourced the first US direct listing from China, the first outward bound PRC acquisition in America, and managed PRC State sponsored deal flow.
I began developing my enterprise value creation and shareholder return innovations, before discovering the management consulting theories on the subjects, in a desperate attempt to expand private placement capital beyond the risks of convertible debt induced death spirals to client share prices.
As the majority of my work involves board authorization, participation, and oversite because of the resolutions required to issue equity, I launched Raney & Associates to provide access to my endorsed strategies that create brand value and to promote equity capital markets as a more viable and transparent funding option for global SMEs. My solutions are not only proven, integrable, and scalable, they are the most cost-effective in the market.
As a generalist, I have spent the post-APO debacle and implosion developing strategies for private issuers in a variety of industries, and expanding my audience of institutional investors, which now also include venture debt and every layer of the capital stack for CRE sponsors of multifamily acquisitions and senior living developments.
I was born in Virginia, but grew up in Ohio as a multi-sports all-star, including a 4-time undefeated PPK champion and all-conference footballer. And I am the favorite grandchild of Donald Mills, the most recorded lead singer in music history. The Mills Brothers spent the early part of WWII in London, where my grandmother, a professional ballerina whose family changed their name from Kline to Keene, is from. I am a bachelor living in Santa Monica who enjoys travel, reading, sports, working out, and exploring online the locations of my website visitors.
