CEO, October 3
On the October episode of CEO, Satori Capital Managing Partner Sunny Vanderbeck tells host Lee Cullum how the private equity firm helps companies steer clear of common roadblocks to growth and explains why they look to invest in companies with a conscience. “(Satori Capital believes) profits aren’t a reflection of what you can get away with, what you can extract, but they’re a reflection of the value you create for a customer, for the community you’re in, for your employee,” he says. Vanderbeck also predicts business trends he says will be revolutionary.
