Ian Mathews

Ian Mathews is the CEO of 5on4 Group, a management training company and consultancy he formed just because he liked the kitschy hockey title.

Ian is also the CRO of technology startup Keep Technologies, a featured writer for Forbes, a prolific capital raiser, and he might be stalking you on LinkedIn. In 2018, Ian retired from corporate America after serving two decades as a senior executive for two Fortune 500 companies, while moonlighting as an advisor for a tech startup with a $28M exit.

Frank Cava

Frank Cava is the CEO of one of Richmond’s fastest-growing companies, an executive coach, and he devours red meat like an apex predator in the Serengeti.

Over his 25-year career, Frank has built or renovated more homes than tickets sold in an entire season by his beloved Miami Dolphins. During his run from a Fortune 500 to founding Cava Companies, Frank led dozens of teams and built a reputation as a no-nonsense business consultant for small business owners and CEO’s.

At times eloquent and succinct, and at other points blunt and obnoxious, this is our unique riff on the big questions we had early in our careers.

We talk about standing out in a company, leading people, building cultures, persuasion, marketing, management, and building businesses from scratch. We are light on theory and heavy on practical experience, weaving personal stories from our collective 50 years of business experience.?

Both of us see business as sport, and you’ll see our passion bleed into every conversation. Our takes are not always mainstream, but we promise to be honest and entertaining about what it takes to build wealth and have fun doing it. In short, we will try not to suck. Come along and ride on our fantastic voyage.
