Keara Sauber, a serial entrepreneur, began her first business in financial services as a registered advisor in college and continues today in ventures from tech, health, and finance.
Her venture into healthcare began in sales and marketing at GlaxoSmithKline, where she spent half a decade in a prestigious leadership program that rotated her through every area of the company. Her innate curiosity and leadership drive led her to winning multiple awards while at GSK.
Following that experience, Keara was an operating partner and managed physicians, sales, risk mitigation and planning, and helped oversee the end-to-end facility needs for a sleep lab. Prior to selling this business, she and her partner worked to successfully change Federal and State legislation regarding medical criteria in the transportation sector.
She was later hired to a private equity firm where she led the acquisitions team to complete more than 23 asset purchase agreements. Her interest in financial opportunities grew and Keara was recruited to a specialty lender backed by Goldman Sachs as Vice President. Keara and her syndicate platform have originated more than $500 million dollars to date.
She has served on multiple boards of directors and led growth and management consulting for many companies – medical, health and other. She has worked in the health areas of pulmonary, cardiology, metabolic health, infectious diseases, urology, dermatology and viral diseases, including consulting a bioremediation company for safety protocols when COVID-19 hit. She served previously as the President of a biological testing company from Los Alamos, NM, and has built proprietary systems and apps for fin tech projects.
Among her many accolades, Keara was awarded The U.S. Department of State Global Entrepreneurship Program (GEP) Award which promotes entrepreneurship by catalyzing and coordinating private sector and U.S. Government programs to support entrepreneurs around the world.
Keara holds dual Bachelor of Science degrees from Seton Hall University in Marketing with a minor in finance and a Bachelor of Science in Management with a minor in psychology.
