Heyman served as a senior executive across various technology-enabled businesses throughout his 30-year corporate career. After spending eight years at Accenture in the early 1990s, Heyman became a senior executive at privately held Radiant Systems. After a highly successful IPO a year later, Heyman held various division president roles before becoming chief operating officer of the company. He served in this capacity until NCR acquired Radiant in 2011 for 19x EBITDA.
Heyman stayed with NCR, first running the combined Hospitality Divisions of NCR and Radiant before serving as division president of NCR’s Financial Services Division. As President of NCR Financial Services, Heyman’s primary responsibilities included overseeing R+D, sales, and consulting for the $3.5 billion business. He then left to become CEO of Catalina Marketing where he remained for two years before leaving to focus on ASH Ventures full time.
During his corporate career, Heyman oversaw both organic and inorganic growth including over a dozen acquisitions. Within the technology industry, he has experience with hardware, networks, software and Saas Models, marketplaces, consulting, and digital marketing. During the last two decades, he invested his family office money, most of which was generated from various liquidation events, into private businesses he felt had a unique moat, a reasonable valuation, and were run by operating partners he trusted. His private investment portfolio generated exceptional returns, which helped fuel his conviction to focus full-time on ASH Ventures in 2018 along with an remarkable group of investors.
