Reed joined Activant in 2017. A student at heart, he spends much of his time reading and thinking about how companies in major legacy industries can adapt to changing consumer preferences, and the infrastructure required to facilitate these experiences. Within the Activant portfolio, Reed spends substantial time on business strategy and financial operations as a means to facilitate commercial expansion.

Prior to joining Activant, Reed worked in the Private Equity Group at Goldman Sachs (alongside Activant colleague, Hana), where he evaluated private equity investments in companies across diverse industries, geographies, and growth stages. Before Goldman Sachs, Reed was a student-athlete at Harvard, where he studied Cognitive Neuroscience and Economics and swam long distance freestyle on the Harvard Men’s Varsity Swimming Team.

In his spare time, Reed competes in endurance running and triathlon events and plays with his 8 month old Weimaraner puppy, Oslo.
