“Every decision I make is with intention – it’s the very key to my life. I love to innovate, fuel ambition, and strategize success. I live to help others discover their vision, and to serve my family, my community, and my faith along the way.”

Vic launched his career in commercial banking at JP Morgan Chase after graduating from Texas Tech University. He was given management responsibilities early on to lead and grow the company’s commercial banking business. During this time, Vic had the privilege to interact with top executives across various industries. Eventually, Vic transitioned into the automotive industry as the Vice President of Sales for Wynn’s Automotive, the oil and insurance subsidiary of Wynn’s International, where he oversaw all national accounts.

Ever the entrepreneurial spirit, in 2002 Vic decided to cultivate a personal vision and started his first company, carXperience, where he had the privilege to partner with automotive industry icons, Cecil and Larry Van Tuyl. Vic continued to build other ventures over time, including the successful ZAK Automotive enterprise, which included three vertically integrated entities – ZAK products, a professional-use automotive fluid and maintenance products company that was an Official Partner of NASCAR, as well as ZAKTEK, an insurance protection program sold exclusively within franchised car dealerships, and NEXEMO, a B2B e-commerce purchasing platform for the automotive industry.

“I love to create, to build vision, and foster an idea from inception to fruition. When I see an opportunity, I work to seize it, soak it up for all the experience it can offer, and leverage it to bring people and talent together.”

In 2015, the ZAK Automotive Companies were successfully acquired by Berskshire Hathaway, Inc. Vic maintained his CEO role at ZAK and formally assumed senior executive responsibilities for Berkshire Hathaway Automotive, where he oversaw several operating departments in the multi-billion-dollar organization, including the Parts and Service business. He also had the privilege to build and lead the Berkshire Hathaway Automotive Professional Development department, providing training, human capital, talent acquisition, sales strategy, Customer Experience (CSI), and Dealer Academy services to more than 10,000 associates.

Equipped with tremendous experience and exposure, Vic decided that it was time to expand outside the automotive industry and continue his passion to help companies develop and grow. He founded Experience Ventures as a platform to partner and invest in targeted companies poised for growth and, in December of 2017, Vic joined the private equity firm, Ancor Capital Partners, as Managing Partner. At Ancor, he is able to help successful business reach their next level of growth by providing the needed liquidity and resources. He also focuses on operationally optimizing the companies by mentoring their leadership teams and shepherding strategic and cultural initiatives.

“It is not enough to have an experience, you must learn from and share that experience. I’m incredibly fortunate to interact with some amazing people in my life, but those interactions mean nothing if I can’t share my learnings with other people. I feel like it’s my duty in this great life to help others learn and grow.”
