Thomas C. Broadhead
Partner
Thomas Broadhead began his career in 1993 working for Ernst & Young LLP, the global leading professional services firm. At Ernst & Young, Mr. Broadhead worked exclusively with venture-backed and publicly traded companies in the Biotechnology, Internet, Pharmaceutical, High Technology, Software, Telecommunications, Health Care and Manufacturing industries. During his tenure at Ernst & Young, Mr. Broadhead participated in numerous public offerings and complex mergers and acquisitions.

Mr. Broadhead then joined DAOU Systems, Inc., a NASDAQ listed company as Vice President and Corporate Controller. During his involvement with DAOU Systems, Mr. Broadhead assisted in growing the business from $8mm in revenue to over $100mm in revenue annually, and was instrumental in the closing and follow on management of several key acquisitions during his tenure at DAOU. Additionally, he was responsible for all SEC compliance and reporting, company forecasting and modeling, due diligence on all M&A targets, and was a key participant in the closing of several fund raising and debt restructurings.

Mr. Broadhead then became the Controller for Anacomp, Inc., a multinational NASDAQ listed company generating approximately $500mm in revenue annually. During his tenure at Anacomp, Mr. Broadhead was responsible for mergers and acquisitions, SEC compliance and reporting, and directed a staff of over 40 employees. At Anacomp, he was instrumental in the closing of $140mm senior subordinated debt offering (for the closing of a $150mm acquisition), the securing of an $80mm senior revolving credit facility and the implementation of multiple cross-currency swaps to hedge the net assets of the European operations. Mr. Broadhead was also responsible for several re-engineering projects, which significantly reduced the corporate burn, increased operating efficiencies and customer relations.

Mr. Broadhead then became the Chief Financial and Operating Officer for Jacques Gourmet, Inc., a multinational retail and wholesale food services company. Mr. Broadhead was responsible for raising $5mm in private equity financing and securing a $5mm lease line that enabled the company to acquire 16 new retail locations (the company originally had 4 locations when Mr. Broadhead joined). Mr. Broadhead was responsible for negotiating the property leases and overseeing the build-out of these new locations (through the companies construction line of business). Mr. Broadhead was also instrumental in the development of central commissary, which resulted in significant reductions in food and labor costs, increased food consistency, increased utilization rates and better inventory management.

In early 2001, Mr. Broadhead became the Chief Financial Officer of Infogate, Inc. During his tenure at Infogate, Mr. Broadhead worked closely with Mr. Boro and Mr. Vignisson to transform Infogate from a free advertising-supported business model to partnering with leading media companies to provide turnkey, private-labeled, subscription-based information products. As a very cohesive and complimentary team, Mr. Boro, Mr. Vignisson and Mr. Broadhead re-capitalized the company in early 2002 (which made it more attractive to new investment), raised $3mm in new capital and in March 2003 navigated the sale of Infogate to AOL Time Warner. Prior to the sale, Mr. Broadhead played a critical role in reorganizing the operations of Infogate to reduce the monthly burn on average from $1.5mm per month to $250k per month by renegotiating all existing contracts to more favorable terms, exiting long-term idle facility and equipment leases, and by consolidating operations from four locations to one central location.
