Vouch for them.

Bob Aspell
We worked together at Bain & Company  •  Co-Founder, SimplyInsured. Previously Senior Associate, Sverica International. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
Morgan is smart, analytical, and has a good nose for finding what's really important (while ignoring what's not important).
Gwen Luca
We worked together at Golden Gate Capital  •  Previously Associate, Golden Gate Capital. Previously Associate Consultant, Bain & Company. Stanford GSB grad. Stanford grad.
Morgan is one of the top performers I've worked with in both private equity and management consulting. He is incredibly tactful and can hand ... le difficult conversations and situations seamlessly. His analytical aptitude is unparalleled. His drive is apparent and I witnessed it firsthand when he was staffed to run a bankruptcy and sale process on his own of one of our portfolio companies, which is certainly not the most glamorous roles. But he took it as a learning opportunity to dive deep with the management team and extract as much value as was possible for remaining investors. This situation in particular was where Morgan demonstrated the best knack for persuading and communicating with others who's personal vested interest was threatened. Additionally, Morgan has a deep entrepreneurial interest and started his own music-focused travel company while living abroad in South America last year. He has proven to be a tenacious entrepreneur, scrappy enough to great things done but also polished enough to sell his products well. I have no doubt he will go on to build great things while also creating a great culture with all who work with or for him.
Dan Haspel
We worked together at Golden Gate Capital
I was Morgan's direct supervisor at a private equity firm during a very challenging situation with one of our portfolio companies. Morgan w ... as able to parachute in and quickly take control of the situation and gain the trust of the management team. He then laid out a plan and executed against it leading to a successful resolution and sale of the business that created significant incremental value. He inspired a team of pretty unhappy folks to rally and follow him and had an owner's mentality throughout. All of these skills will serve him well as an entrepreneur.
