MEET THE TEAM
Over the past 30 years, Todd Ostrander has developed an ability to extract value from otherwise uninteresting technology.
Mr. Ostrander is a visionary with the ability to simplify complex problems and turn them into significant market opportunities. While he has a broad range of skills from finance to procurement, strategic marketing and product strategy, his core functional expertise is in bringing new products to existing markets as well as identifying and creating new market opportunities with specific focus on go-to-market, intellectual property, and capitalization strategies. With this background, he joins JD Merit with the ability to sit side-by-side with the CEO of the companies he serves and clearly understand and articulate the path forward to mutual success. Collectively, Todd has raised nearly $100mm for his own companies and created in excess of $1bn in market value throughout his career. Technologies that Todd has been responsible for bringing to market are core to the software and infrastructure used to run today’s biggest companies.
Todd has taken four (4) companies from the company creation stage through Institutional/VC investment. His experience gives him the ability to focus his efforts on (1) Technology, Media and Communications; (2) Electronics / Audio; and (3) E-Commerce/SaaS related technologies and Digital Infrastructure.
Todd is a committed husband and father of two grown men and a college aged young woman. He loves to spend time with his wife of over 30 years and family boating, golfing, hiking and following the Mariners, Huskies and Seahawks. Mr. Ostrander currently sits on the Board of Directors of South Sound Christian Schools and Lockr.io.
