The Partners

With over 40 years of transactional experience, Mark, Drew and Tucker have financed hundreds of projects and companies, ranging in size from $1 million to over a billion.

Mark Boyer

As an accomplished executive and investment professional, Mark has built his career by leading teams of individuals to solve problems and bridge the gap between business and capital. Mark believes that the key to any successful business is unlocking the highest potential of each individual team member. He combines this belief with his understanding that properly capitalized companies provide unique and equitable incentives for individual stakeholders and are more likely to maximize the long-term value of the enterprise.

Mark previously served as the CCO (“Chief Capital Officer”), CFO and COO roles for Clean Energy Collective, LLC (CEC) a renewable energy company that grew from a startup to over 100 employees. Mark founded and was President of The Willits Group a real estate private equity firm. Mark was a Partner at GrayMac Properties, and a Project Engineer on Boston’s Central Artery Tunnel Project (“The Big Dig”).

Mark holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University, where has been honored with CSU’s distinguished alumni award. Mark also holds a Master of Science in Development Finance and Economics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Mark is the father of three, a husband, a skier and a fly fisherman.

DREW GOTTENBORG

Drew has an established reputation for creating innovative financing solutions. Over the course of his career, he has consistently structured complex partnerships and joint ventures with a focus on leveraging the key drivers behind the fundamentals of any business and creating capital structures to maximize long-term value. Drew has propelled growth in each of the organizations he’s been a part of by leveraging most efficient processes and straightforward product design to maximize profitability and scalability.

Drew previously served as VP of Finance at Clean Energy Collective. Drew joined CEC after spending 7 years as an investment banker with Denver-based George K. Baum & Company. Drew graduated from Williams College with a degree in Mathematics.

Drew is the father of two, a husband, a music lover and an enduro motorcyclist.

TUCKER HODGKINS

Tucker is a skilled investor with more than a decade of deal experience through work in the private equity, investment banking, and startup / small business sectors. He brings with him to SPUR a keen appreciation for what matters to those responsible for deploying capital to an enterprise. Through trial and error, Tucker has learned to embrace the principle that all companies – and the investment opportunities they represent – are presumed mediocre until proven compelling beyond a reasonable doubt. He also believes that profitable decision making is as much an exercise in intellectual honesty and character judgment as it is a test of analytical talent and industry expertise.

Tucker has spent the last several years consulting early-stage companies on fundraising and other corporate finance matters. He also actively invests in publicly-traded stocks and has consistently outperformed the S&P 500® to date in this endeavor. Tucker previously served as an investment professional for the private equity firm TA Associates, at first in Boston and then in Hong Kong. Before entering private equity, he was an investment banking analyst with Deutsche Bank Securities in Boston. Tucker graduated from Bowdoin College with a bachelor’s degree in Government & Legal Studies.

Tucker resides in San Francisco but holds New England roots, having grown up in Maine. He has been an avid skier for as long as he can remember. Tucker also remembers when he used to play soccer at a competitive level and is reminded daily that a set of golf clubs are stored in his bedroom closet.
