Jim Vena is the visionary founder of AUTUS Advisory Partners. Jim was convinced that the diverse challenges facing small and medium sized companies and early stage businesses with promising products and services were not being met by the consulting industry. Jim has brought together a team of experienced business professionals to form the core partners of AUTUS.
For more than thirty years Jim has built a resume that encompasses a wide range of industries and expertise in sales, marketing, finance, technology and executive management.
Jim has successfully started and developed innovative, high growth businesses and restructured companies that immediately demonstrated accelerated sales and profit growth. His 30 year career has been marked by success across many countries and industries. This track record has established Jim’s credentials as both a seasoned operating executive and an innovator who quickly sees opportunities and what needs to be done to achieve specific goals.
After with drawing from business to care for his family for five years, in 2010 Jim “unretired” and re-entered the business world, this time focusing on founding and nurturing business by establishing and selling several early stage companies. In addition, Jim has advised on mergers and joint ventures, served as a board member in several private equity transactions and consulted with the managements of start-up and early state businesses.
“I get excited about the opportunities that exist today for companies with good ideas and smart managements. I’ve lived what these businesses are experiencing and know that the team I’ve assembled at AUTUS can help them achieve their goals.”
