    McNamara Family Ventures (MFV) is a family investment office which provides venture and growth capital to companies operating in the healthcare industry. Where appropriate, McNamara helps management draft business plans, define strategy, plan tactics, consummate mergers and strategic partnerships, and attract key talent. In co-investment situations, MFV is an engaged collaborator with other investors and management teams, as appropriate. McNamara Family Ventures invests in promising early stage and expansion-stage companies operating across the healthcare landscape. The firm will not invest in intellectual property or entities where success hinges on clinical or FDA outcomes. MFV focuses on regional businesses that operate within a reasonable proximity to middle-Tennessee. Founding principal, Kevin McNamara, currently serves on the Boards of Directors of Tyson Foods, Inc. (TSN), a publicly-held member of the S&P 500 and one of the world's largest processors and marketers of chicken, beef, and pork; as well as Luminex Corporation (LMNX), a publicly-held life sciences company. From 2005 through his retirement in 2009, Kevin served as the Chief Financial Officer of HealthSpring, Inc. (HS), one of the largest Medicare focused managed care entities in the U.S. While there he oversaw the company's initial listing on the New York Stock Exchange in February 2006.
