fifth business: principals

Robert F. Roda  |  John Donnelly, Jr.  |  Michael Feeney

Mike Feeney has over 20 years of experience in a variety of senior management positions spanning virtually all aspects of bringing technology-based products to market. Prior to joining Fifth Business, Mike developed specific expertise for dramatically increasing revenue while, at the same time, maximizing owner's equity in technology-based businesses.

As a principal and vice president of marketing at PowerCrew, Mike developed and executed the company's transition from a professional services-centric business model to an ERP reseller. His efforts contributed to consistent growth (235% over 2.5 years), profitability and a successful acquisition—increasing the value of PowerCrew by over 200%.

As vice president of marketing at Spectrum Associates, an ERP software and services company, Mike's efforts contributed to 10 consecutive quarters of growth and profitability (with over 20% operating margin), propelling the company to the top 15% of the Inc. 500 in 1992, 1993 and 1994. During his tenure, the company grew 300% ($13 to $40 million) leading to an acquisition that yielded a value "unmatched the industry," according to AMR Research.

In addition to his role at Fifth Business, he serves on the board and advises Strategic Ventures, an investment capital consulting firm. Mike has also held senior management positions at Scenica, Powersoft/Sybase, Baird and Unisys.

Mike is a graduate of Bentley College, where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science.
