Ep. 188 – Gray Matters Capital VP & COO, Trice Kabundi

Nov 20, 2021

Our guest today is the Vice President and COO of Gray Matters Capital, Trice Kabundi.

Often described as a game-changer and organizational secret weapon, Trice has built and managed business initiatives and teams in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the US. Skilled at bridging strategy and operations. She’s no stranger to capturing the big picture and driving tactical execution. With a relentless commitment to developing talent and fostering high-performance environments, she has garnered a reputation as a trusted servant leader.  

As the first-ever Chief Operating Officer of Gray Matters Capital, Inc., an impact investor with  $200 million AUM across emerging markets, Trice led the restructuring of the 15-year-old  foundation and a successful culture turnaround. Prior to Gray Matters Capital, she served as a Director at World  50, a private company designed to help the senior-most executives of the world’s largest organizations stay ahead. Over the course of her tenure, she headed a client group of senior legal executives, designed sessions for business leaders, and curated connections between some of the most well-known business, government, and cultural figures.  

In the other streams of her life, Trice serves on the board of premier Atlanta fine arts center  Callanwolde, advocates for more equitable systems, and is actively engaged in growing and expanding her family’s agribusiness. She also regularly contemplates tiramisu for breakfast and why her family doesn’t believe in 5 am kickoffs for their road trips.
