Kurt is a leader and corporate change agent, with a track record of success implementing and executing strategies at organizations ranging from the Fortune 100 to bootstrapped start-ups. Thanks to the introduction from a mutual media connection and inspired by Bryan’s vision for a disruptive new legal model, Kurt joined GenCo as one of its founding members. Having a unique background of change management consulting and business development, Kurt’s focus at GenCo is optimizing people, processes, products, and providing clerk support to the firm’s diverse portfolio of healthcare technology companies as the firm continues its rapid national expansion.
A native of the Midwest, Kurt was fortunate to grow up in a small supportive community. His father was a solo practitioner, and to Kurt and everyone in the town, he was the real-life Atticus Finch. His practice included everything from part time public defender to complex civil litigation, and everything else that walked through his door. Kurt’s father gave him a role model for how to be both a successful lawyer and entrepreneur, and from a young age, Kurt knew he wanted to be both.
To gain the knowledge and skills to attain that goal, Kurt needed to take his game to a higher level. He found his ticket in a Division 1 football scholarship. There, Kurt’s coaches and mentors challenged him to build an off the field resume just as impressive as the one he had built on the field. Heeding that advice, Kurt spent his last semester of college interning for a think tank in Washington D.C., where he saw firsthand the invaluable power of networking.
Armed with discipline, the work ethic of a college athlete, and a cast of supportive mentors, Kurt entered the world of management consulting. For the next five years, Kurt expanded his network living and working all across the country, from San Francisco and Dallas Texas to New York City. Over that tenure Kurt’s engagements have included everything from leading a strategic reorganization of key branches for the largest non-profit in its industry, to designing and deploying organizational effectiveness surveys to Fortune 100 Companies, and playing a key role in securing $1M in funding for a nationwide platform to recruit millennials to Congress.
Kurt’s passion for the people and process side of the business equation, led him to law school, where he found that combining his consulting experience with a business law curriculum would allow him to realize his goal, and become both a lawyer and an entrepreneur. Through these experiences, Kurt brings a unique perspective and business-first mindset to his role at GenCo. Having sat on the opposite side of the table, he understands that businesses want innovative, cost-conscious legal solutions.
