ULYSSES PRATAS, MEMBER - OP. ADVISORY GROUP
Founders' Operating Advisory Group was formed in the summer of 2015 to formalize our firm's relationship with individuals that provide certain advisory services to our full-time team. These services take the form of pre-closing or post-closing assessments of current practices in specific functional areas, as well as other intermittent coaching, mentoring or other services. Members of the Operating Advisory Group meet annually at the Founders Summit, where senior managers from each of Founders’ companies come together to build group-wide knowledge and relationships, as well as visiting with specific companies ad hoc.
As a member of the Operating Advisory Group at Founders, Ulysses is involved in pre-closing or post-closing assessments of current practices at portfolio companies, with a special focus on protein businesses. Ulysses is also a Board Director at Armand Agra Inc. and Presteve Foods Ltd, both Founders companies.
Ulysses is the former President & CEO of Presteve Foods Limited, where he built the company over decades to become the largest harvester, processor, and distributor of freshwater fish on the Great Lakes.
