J. Carter McNabb

Managing Partner

Carter joined River Cities in 1999 and leads the Firm’s healthcare investing practice. He has been instrumental in setting River Cities’ healthcare strategy and establishing the Firm’s credibility within the healthcare vertical.

Previously, Carter worked in marketing and business development for Home Technology Healthcare, a comprehensive home healthcare company offering nursing, DME, infusion therapy and hospice services. Home Technology Healthcare was private equity financed by Continental Illinois and acquired by Integrated Health Services in 1997. As the 1998 recipient of the Bradford Fellowship for achievements in corporate finance, Carter worked in equity research at J.C. Bradford & Co. while attending business school at Vanderbilt.

Carter has achieved numerous highly profitable exits in healthcare services and medical technology, including Suros Surgical Systems, Accelecare, SurgiQuest, OrthoHelix, Invivodata, PerfectServe, TissueTech and Orthoscan. He currently serves on the boards of Nico, OrthAlign, Bolder Surgical, Spineology and Catalyst Orthoscience. Carter is also an independent board member of UC Health, the largest academic medical center in Southwest Ohio.

Carter holds a BA in Classical Studies from Trinity College (Hartford, CT) where he was awarded the James Goodwin Prize, the oldest academic honor at the college, and received his MBA from Vanderbilt University.

What makes River Cities a trusted and valued partner is their strategic guidance and support of management during the inevitable difficult periods. In my estimation this separates a good investor from a great one.

CEO, OrthoScan, Inc

River Cities was able to recognize our opportunity earlier than their competitors, run an efficient due diligence process that did not impact our ability to focus on our business while bringing in investment partners that improved all our chances of success. In my book, Rivers Cities, is the definition of a true partner that added much more than financing to our company.

River Cities history and expertise in working with growth stage companies proved invaluable in the formative years of PerfectServe. While our strategy shifted to better meet market dynamics, the team at River Cities was always there as a source of encouragement and business development. They made strategic introductions to some of our earliest hospital clients, contributing significantly to our growth. The people at River Cities are creative, constructive and straightforward. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them as my business partners.
