American River Ventures adds CFO

American River Ventures has added F. Ray Nunez to their executive team as CFO. In addition to the typical duties of a CFO, Nunez will work with ARV's portfolio companies to help them create sound financial plans at the earliest stages.

Prior to joining ARV, Nunez served as Director of Finance law firm McDonough Holland & Allen PC. Prior to joining McDonough, he spent 16 years in various financial and management roles at HP.

American River Ventures co-founder scaling back

One of the co-founders of local VC firm American River Ventures is stepping back. ARV is currently raising another fund, but The Sac Bee's Bob Shallit says that Corely Phillips has other plans.

Raising a new fund takes a long term commitment, often taking a decade or more to raise the money, make the investments, and wait for those companies to grow their businesses to a successful return for the investors. Phillips says he doesn't want to commit that much time and plans to spend more time with family and friends.
