Before joining Alpha Edison, Robey was a Director at Strathspey Crown, a Newport Beach-based growth equity firm focused on Healthcare and Technology, where he led diligence efforts, financial analysis, deal execution, and portfolio company operations for a variety of early-stage companies. Prior to Strathspey Crown, Robey spent several years working as a management consultant at Monitor Deloitte, concentrating primarily on growth strategy and corporate development initiatives.
Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Robey studied Economics at Claremont McKenna College, attracted to Southern California weather and strong corporate finance program. While at Claremont, Robey was the Captain and President of the Men's Lacrosse Team and regrettably attempted to learn Mandarin and econometrics.
When not working, Robey enjoys hiking with Hendricks (his black Lab and the official Alpha Edison mascot), reading investigative journalism non-fiction tomes (recent favorites include "American Kingpin: The Silk Road Story" by Nick Bilton and "Black Edge" by Sheelah Kolhatkar) and playing golf when his fiancee Calida (a radiation oncologist) permits. Robey and his fiancee also enjoy live music (their favorite venue in LA is Hollywood Forever Cemetery where they last saw Tame Impala) and debating how to fix the US healthcare system - Calida typically gets the last word though.
