Gary Grant joined Fieldstone Partners as a Senior Partner in 2008 after a distinguished 30-year career establishing, growing and managing diverse businesses. As a successful entrepreneur, private company business owner and public company senior executive, Gary co-founded ViaNet, Inc. in 1977, a Houston-based company which grew to over $30 million in revenues in the span of 17 years, becoming the largest same-day delivery and logistics business in the southwest United States.
In 1994, ViaNet joined with five other companies to form U.S. Delivery Systems, the first publicly traded same-day logistics company with a national service footprint. Gary became President and COO of the publicly traded company, which was listed on the NYSE, and led its growth from approximately $100 million in revenues to over $800 million in revenues, including a successful merger into Corporate Express. This included the operational integration of over 100 companies that were acquired by U.S. Delivery during those years.
Gary has subsequently launched AXion Logistics, a specialty logistics firm serving the refinery and petrochemical markets, including Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil and other major customers.
Gary graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from Cal State Fullerton.
