WHAT DRIVES ME
"I grew up in our family business started by my grandfather, Robert Dedman. He built ClubCorp from just 1 country club to over 200 across the world with over 18,000 employees. It is with this same sense of ambition and dedication that I launched Mayborn Capital. Sadly, he is no longer with us, but his legacy of being a "builder and a giver" serves as a guidepost motivating me to follow in his steps. I understand first-hand the importance of legacy and I am eager to build upon the legacy you have created."
