Zach Kayem, vice president at EnCap Flatrock Midstream, is today’s Forty Under 40 featured honoree.
At EnCap Flatrock, Zach supports the sourcing and management of the venture capital firm’s portfolio, as well as serving on the boards of multiple portfolio companies.
Zach’s career began in investment banking as a financial analyst for SWS Group Inc. During his time with SWS Group, he said he learned lessons that he was later able to apply in his roles on multiple EnCap Flatrock portfolio boards.
“I saw the process and responsibilities that a management team and board members handle,” Zach said. “I wondered when, in my career, I would both feel comfortable and be trusted enough to handle that responsibility.”
Zach currently serves on the boards of Stakeholder Midstream, Moda Midstream, Greenfield Midstream and Nuevo Midstream Dos.
