Rick Gombos Joins Full Stack Finance as Senior Partner

As demand for accounting, HR, and finance services from startup companies continues to grow in 2018, the firm makes a key hire and builds on its position as the leading provider of these services to the tech and startup ecosystem in Southern California.

Santa Monica/Pasadena, November 27, 2017:  Full Stack Finance, LLC (“Full Stack”) is excited to welcome Rick Gombos to the team.  Joining as a Senior Partner, Rick will work with co-founders Ivan Ivankovich and Jordan Posell to help lead the firm and provide experienced C-level guidance and advice to its clients.  He brings over twenty years of finance and accounting management experience to Full Stack, including a decade of experience as Chief Financial Officer for a number of venture-capital and private equity-backed high growth enterprises.

He brings an extensive background in building out the operational and finance functions (people, processes and systems) for high-growth companies.  In addition, Rick has expertise in assisting high growth businesses to achieve “lift off” through a mix of strong strategic direction and team building.

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to be part of the Full Stack team,” said Mr. Gombos.  “Ivan and Jordan have already established the top player in the LA market and I anticipate that adding a third partner to the mix will allow us to help even more startups to do great things.  I have been working with these kinds of companies for almost 20 years and this opportunity will allow me to continue my passion of working early stage growth companies, helping them to effectively build teams and processes in order to scale.”

Prior to joining Full Stack, Rick served as CFO for Pathway Partners (Austin, TX), Colony Logic (Los Angeles, CA) and OpenX (Pasadena, CA). In each of these companies, he was instrumental in building out both the financial and operational infrastructure necessary for hyper-growth. Prior to these roles, Rick held senior operational and finance roles at Yahoo!, Overture and Veoh. He began his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Ivan Ivankovich, Co-Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Full Stack, indicated that “Rick’s extensive senior finance & accounting expertise is certain to be of huge value to Full Stack’s clients and relationship network. In addition, Rick’s ability to provide senior, seasoned advice and insights will extend the company’s capabilities to many more high growth companies.”

Mr. Gombos earned his Bachelor’s Degree (Magna Cum Laude) in Business Economics with a minor in Accounting from UCLA.
