Kevin Groman is the owner and principal of Crown Canyon Capital, which invests in underserved opportunities and implements innovative strategies to drive sustainable results. In 2014, when he became aware of this secret, almost untouched canyon in the heart of the city, he immediately acquired this gem.
Prior to that, he was CEO of ECM Energy Services, an emerging growth private company that was on the threshold of pricing an IPO, before selling to the #2 largest player in the industry, Sunbelt Holdings, for a substantial premium. In addition, Mr. Groman has had a successful career in Fortune 1,000 public companies, such as at RSC Equipment Rental, PetSmart, Inc., and CSK Auto Corporation, leading IPOs, mergers & acquisitions, real estate, construction, property management, environmental, sustainability, safety, legal, compliance, human resources, etc.
He is currently on the investment committee of the Arizona Founders Fund, sits on the Board of Directors of SNUBA International, and advises/consults for numerous companies. He has also been focused on philanthropic endeavors, such as being appointed: as a member of the Arizona Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission; as a member of the City of Phoenix, Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission; and as the chair of the ACC’s In-House Counsel Pro Bono Commission.
The foundation of his career has been centered around building a solid culture that focuses on integrity, safety, sustainability, and results. In addition, teamwork has always been core to Groman, beginning with his time as a professional athlete, playing Professional Beach Volleyball.
