  1. Operations
  2. Fractional COO

Team-centric operations leader with substantial experience in marketplace, scaling organizations, and navigating dynamic environments.

I am driven by a growth mindset and a deep belief in the power of unlocking human potential to drive business results, individual advancement, and ultimately, societal impact. I’ve gained entrepreneurial experience firsthand with my own bootstrapped startup (Unbucket), I’ve experienced the hyper-growth path to IPO as senior director (Lyft), and I’ve gone through the M&A challenge of divesting, restructuring, and selling a business (Workrise). I’ve also had a lot of meaningful experiences outside of operations in the realm of brand strategy and marketing, which has given me a well-rounded perspective on bringing a business to life.

Elliot Darvick
I always start with values. I’m a Midwesterner. Determination, hard work, kindness and integrity. That's me. And why is it important in the context of being a fractional operator? Because my values are present whether we're talking about a three month engagement or a 30 year relationship; it doesn't matter, there's nothing temporary about my values. I'm also a servant leader. I deeply believe in the idea that if you grow your team, you grow your business. That approach is the sustainable way to grow a business, and I think that mentality is the epitome of being a servant leader. I also like to help people grow. I think about what I can do to serve this individual or this team in front of me, and I bring that no matter what the circumstance. I'm a generalist. I've done everything from build major marketing campaigns to leading 100+ person operations. I've done M&A work and growth operations, and everything in between. I think to be a generalist is to be inquisitive. I love learning, and in the context of being a fractional operator, it allows me to get up to speed quickly. To be a generalist is also to have good pattern recognition; I know what questions to ask and I really thrive in a dynamic environment. Finally, I'm a builder. I've had entrepreneurial endeavors of my own and I know what it takes to bring something from nothing to something. I have a great and immense respect for what that takes, and I bring that reverence and that excitement for building to everything I do.
