Travis is passionate about the role of business and the marketplace in creating meaningful opportunity, especially for the global poor.
Travis' journey to Noonday started many years ago when he left his job in corporate finance to become a banker to the poor in Africa. For several years, he was the Managing Director of a microfinance institution in Mozambique that provided business loans to women in rural villages. It was there that he saw firsthand what happens when people are given the opportunity to flourish.
Prior to partnering with Jessica in 2011 to grow Noonday Collection, Travis held finance and marketing roles at Dun & Bradstreet, Amazon.com, Banc of America Securities and Andersen Consulting. Travis received bachelor degrees in Finance and Public Policy from Southern Methodist University and holds an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Travis enjoys spending time with his wife Suzanne and their three kids, Joseph, Jack and Ellen. Travis is a member of the Austin Chapter of Entrepreneur's Organization and is on the Development Board for the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas.
