UAVENTURE CAPITAL, LLC
An entrepreneur and a contrarian, Fletcher McCusker has a knack for being in the right place at the right time, which he attributes to creating opportunities for luck to happen and surrounding himself with smart people.
A native Tucsonan and a graduate of the University of Arizona, he attended graduate school at Arizona State University after being turned down by the UA. At the ripe old age of 46 he decided he had enough of working for other people and followed a well known route for developing his own company: his money, friend’s money, venture capital, mezzanine funds and ultimately a very successful public offering.
Currently, Fletcher serves as CEO of UAVENTURE CAPITAL, LLC, a venture capital fund he formed with Larry Hecker and Michael Deitch.
He has returned much to the community; serving on the boards of the Eller School and the Social and Behavioral Sciences College, the YMCA, St. Gregory School, The Metro Chamber, Sun Corridor and participates in numerous charitable causes. His company Providence relocated the company headquarters to downtown in May of 2010, then a billion dollar a year business, remodeling an entire city block of abandoned buildings. Since then Fletcher has been very active in downtown revitalization; as a Chairman’s circle member of Sun Corridor, as a board member of The Downtown Tucson Partnership and as a co-founder of Second Saturdays Downtown.
He was also Chairman of the Board of the Fox Theatre Foundation and is credited with the current successful turnaround of the Fox and was appointed to the Rio Nuevo board in June of 2012 by the President of the Senate and unanimously elected Chairman by his fellow board members.
Fletcher is a pilot, a Harley rider, an avid skier, a father of Tyler, husband of Liz (CEO of Tu Nidito Children and Family Services) and a great friend of Tucson.
