GenXYZ 2015: Eric Moraczewski


Published:

The Connector

34 |  Chief Executive Officer
FDI Strategies

Through cross-border, growth-consulting firm FDI Strategies, Eric Moraczewski has established a network in the United States and China that helps mid-tier companies poised for international growth get direct foreign investment. Moraczewski, who launched the firm after serving as chief financial officer of one of the world’s largest museum design companies at the age of 27, landed his first client, a Fortune 200 company in China, within six months of starting FDI.

Biggest achievement

“I came out here and started a business that most people would only think of doing in New York or Los Angeles. I raised the capital to get it off the ground from people who didn’t know me and signed our first client a year before we expected to.”

Making an impact

“One of the biggest impacts we make on a regular basis is derived from the premise not that we would bring foreign companies in, but that we would help businesses that are already here by bringing business to them.”

Role model

“I get a lot of advice from Bill Miller, the original inventor of cloud storage 20 years ago.”

Best advice

“Patience. I want to make stuff happen today and yesterday, not tomorrow. But what I’m doing is not a quick sales cycle. I need to have patience.”

Off-duty

Family time, Executive MBA program at Washington University in St. Louis (Denver campus).

“Between grad school and work, there’s not a lot of down time.”
