Conrad Fried has over ten years of experience in financial operations for companies in a variety of industries ranging from sole proprietors to Fortune 500. Drawing on this background, he joined Propeller eager to focus on startups. Realizing his passion lies in problem solving, he enjoys finance’s ability to touch and improve all aspects of a business. Conrad has a unique ability to mesh with teams like tech and manufacturing that normally hide from accounting. Conrad is always curious and loves helping his team learn and grow.
Conrad recently moved from Austin, Texas to New York City after many years contemplating it. Before his move, he spent almost a decade learning all aspects of accounting with a focus on revenue and cash. Somewhere along the way, he went back to school and passed all the CPA exams while working full time! An avid swimmer, Conrad jumped in to the deep end at an NYC startup unicorn to turn around a global Order-to-Cash team that was in turmoil. At Propeller he looks forward to helping a mixture of companies grow to meet their potential.
Originally from Colorado (go Broncos!), Conrad grew up in Houston before moving to Austin for college. He holds a B.B.A. in Finance/Accounting and a B.A. in Government. Conrad spends his free time exploring the Tri-State area, trying new beer and brainstorming startup ideas. Sometimes all three at once! He applies the postal worker’s motto (neither snow nor rain…) to bicycling and forces himself to run on the West Side Highway.
