Mike McCreless

Senior Director of Strategy and Impact

When I was younger, I wanted to be a classical musician. I played violin and piano. I conducted orchestras. So naturally, I ended up at Root Capital managing our impact measurement and management. I’m excited by the opportunity to play my small part in reinventing the financial sector so that it reduces—rather than exacerbates—poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation. When I’m not at work, I spend time with my wife and two daughters, or reconnect with my Texas roots by slow-cooking large cuts of beef or pork on our outdoor smoker.
