Conference Chair: Jeff Noland

Jeff has honed his understanding of operational finance and leadership over the course of two decades in finance, real estate and technology. Prior to co-founding DartPoints in 2012, he served as Chief Financial Officer of a Southwest-based commercial finance firm, where he oversaw a mid-eight figure balance sheet and negotiated and closed a $30 million non-recourse credit facility during the height of the 2008-10 credit crisis. He also led the acquisition and development initiatives for a California-based real estate private equity firm, creating millions of dollars in value through negotiation and asset management efforts. Jeff also spent several years in Silicon Valley negotiating dozens of technology licenses and strategic partnerships with leading software and hardware vendors, after beginning his career in investment banking.

Jeff is also a leader in the Dallas business community, having served as Chapter President for the DFW Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) and as an Adjunct Professor of Finance at both Southern Methodist University and the University of Texas at Dallas. In addition, Jeff was recently appointed to join the Board of Directors for ACG Global.

In his spare time, Jeff enjoys distance running, playing amateur baseball, skeet shooting, playing the guitar and spending time with his wife and two children, usually on a ball field of some sort. He earned his BS in Finance from Miami University (Ohio) and his MBA in Entrepreneurial Management, Electronic Commerce, and Finance (triple major) from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
