In his position as Head of Corporate Development for technology company Uber, Cameron Poetzscher uses his wide range of experience and significant reputation as an executive with proven finance, operational and deal-making experience. All of that has combined to improve his company’s fortunes and make it even better than it was before, which is no small feat for a company that has been a tech darling almost since its creation. However, he has created many corporate partnerships so far and he has raised copious amount of capital for his company, as well.
What makes him so good at his current job may be due to his considerable experience. Over a long career prior to Uber, he led many very difficult negotiations, and helped to complete a great many complex transactions, including many structured partnerships and acquisitions and made many deals. Also well before he made his mark with Uber, Cameron Poetzscher had a long 17-year career with Goldman Sachs, where he was a global investment professional. There, he provided investment advice and guidance to some of the most sophisticated and demanding clients anywhere, including Fortune 50 companies and pre-IPO start-ups backed by leading venture capital firms. He has worked on many complex high-profile mergers and acquisition transactions, IPOs and other financings.
Cameron Poetzscher's long career has primarily centered on the technology, media and telecommunications sectors, especially the Internet and entertainment areas, but he also has considerable experience working with companies in a number of other fields, including the financial, healthcare, consumer products, natural resources, industrial, and real estate areas. His experience is international; he’s done deals on five continents.
