Nick Narisaranukul embarked on his career as a mechanical engineer and spent the first four years at Seagate Technology in various design, manufacturing and product management roles. He quickly realized his calling to pursue the business and management career path. After acquiring his MBA, he began his initial years of business-minded training through working as an equity analyst at Piper Jaffray and a strategy consultant at Accenture solely serving clients in the technology industry.
Wanting to get back in operational roles, he spent the next decade in numerous leadership positions with several companies ranging from start-ups – Lyve (acquired by Seagate) and Atempo (acquired by ASG Technologies) – to big corporations (Samsung, Seagate and Juniper) to create and execute business strategies, develop company-wide business models and financial plans and launch new products to the market. Due to Nick’s passion for working with great people and solving problems, he didn’t need a lot of convincing to join Doug, Val and Wei at Pacific Arc Investments.
