Ike Kier is the co-founder and CEO of KG Funds Management which he established in 2008.
From 2004 to 2008, Ike created management groups responsible for 4 special purpose acquisition companies which collectively raised approximately $200 million from the public markets. All of the management teams completed their mergers/purchases of their targets.
Ike’s business experience includes serving on numerous boards and building two businesses, both of which went public: Lida Inc. (formerly NASDAQ: LIDA) and eDiets (formerly NASDAQ: EDIET).
Ike received the cellular license to build cell towers and serve the I-85 corridor between Montgomery, AL, and Atlanta, GA with cellular service. He held the rights for 2 years, and then negotiated a cash sale of his spectrum rights to the surrounding providers who were encroaching on his territory.
Ike earned a J.D. from George Washington University and a B.A. in Economics from Cornell University.
