Louis Hernandez Jr. was appointed Executive Chairman for Grass Valley in July of 2020. He is an Investor, Entrepreneur, Operator and Philanthropist who has a knack for transforming and diversifying companies through his unique methodology. He has orchestrated massive transformations of companies disrupted by advances in technology, driving performance, improving margins, and returning them to profitability. Hernandez has a deep understanding of how to extract value from operations, build effective strategies, value for the future, and has reshaped the global landscape for banking technology.
From early stage to large private equity transactions, Louis has guided leadership teams to create market leaders from high growth to complicated turnaround situations, and all forms of capital raising including multiple IPOs and related transactions and much more. His focus on diversity, partnering with management and solving complicated industry issues has been the hallmark of his investment approach. His extensive track record has led to featured guest appearances on CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg TV to discuss topics ranging from technology, strategy, and economics.
At private equity firm Black Dragon Capital, Louis combines his tech experience with his managerial background to find overlooked opportunities in both public and private markets. With a focus on diversity and operations, the firm uses a proprietary process to identify undervalued mid-market tech companies that could use the company’s “toolkit” to advance growth, find opportunities in digitization, and lean on the expertise of Black Dragon’s team.
Through Black Dragon Capital, Louis is looking to help other entrepreneurs and management teams that stand where he once stood. Not only is he looking for great investment opportunities, but he’s also looking to pass down lessons to a new generation of business leaders through this venture.
