Executive Perspective with Richard Erickson

Mr. Erickson has 30+ years of combined operating and investment experience in the technology segment. Prior to Lightview, he served as general partner at Updata Partner and held numerous executive roles at select private and public technology companies. He discusses how his operating experience influences Lightview’s investment philosophy, what an attractive asset looks like to Lightview, and how he believes private equity will deploy funds over the coming year.

Lightview’s recent investment in Buchanan Technologies (represented in the transaction by martinwolf‘s LMM Group) is the latest in a series of technology enabled services investments. Erickson walks through Lightview’s interest in investing in Buchanan, his previous experience investing in the sector, where he thinks the MSP market is heading and attractive characteristics for MSPs looking for funding.
