Dr. Avi Faliks is a Managing Director at Spring Mountain Capital where we co-leads the private equity  division.  Prior to joining Spring Mountain, Avi capitalized on the significant financial turmoil of 2008-2009 to buy distressed consumer companies with great brands.  These companies were restructured, grown, and then sold to strategic and financial investors.
Avi was also the co-founder and Managing Director at Apex Capital Management, a $1 Billion AUM hedge fund based in New York and Hong Kong that specializes in Greater China investments.   Before his tenure at Apex, Avi was the Chief Executive Officer and majority shareholder of AccuImage Diagnostic Corp., a public software company specializing in medical imaging.  At AccuImage, he led financing rounds, established loan facilities, and negotiated and engineered a sale of the company to a much larger public company at a very significant premium.

Avi began his career at the Strategic Structures and Transactions group at Bear Stearns helping to lead the firm’s proprietary capital investments in a variety of sectors.   Avi graduated with honors from Harvard University with a B.A. in Applied Mathematics in 1995.  He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from Princeton University in 1998.  Avi holds several patents in optimization algorithms, polymerization, medical imaging, and golf.
