Our Story

Co-Founders Rob Vollero and Gentry Beach are longtime business partners who began their careers together as investment bankers and later founded Vollero Beach Capital Partners that managed over $2 billion as a global hedge fund based in New York and Dallas. In 2016, they merged into Citadel, LLC, one of the world’s largest investment firms. They subsequently formed Highground Holdings with the goal of offering unique capital solutions to a wide range of clients, investors, and company partners. Todd Rader joined the team in 2021, bringing with him a host of operational experience and contacts to expand the footprint, reach, and capabilities of Highground.
