ManagementDavid I. Liu
David is Managing Partner and Founder of Steelwood Capital. He is actively involved in managing the firm and leads all phases of the investment process.
Previously, he was a strategy consultant at Booz & Company (formerly Booz Allen Hamilton) and Accenture (formerly Andersen Business Consulting of Arthur Andersen LLP). In these roles, he advised Fortune 1000 companies, from mid-size pharmacy benefits managers, regional insurance companies, to national banks, on cost reduction, operations improvement, and growth strategies. Prior to strategy consulting, as a technologist at Cerner Corporation, David led efforts to address some of the most pressing issues facing healthcare providers around the country—optimizing revenue cycle through systems integration, meeting clinical documentation demands, and managing billing and claims processing. In 2011, his passion for working with small businesses and tackling interesting challenges led him to an opportunity to work with a private medical group in Greater China, where he led the company’s entry into medical cosmetics. In this role, he implemented a new marketing strategy and built a sales team from the ground up to support the expansion. David is also an active philanthropist with a history of supporting local small businesses.
David earned his MBA from INSEAD and BS in Information Systems from Carnegie Mellon University.
