Marines ➡️ McKinsey ➡️ VC-Backed Startup (Recruit Rockstars 391)

Frank Furman was destined to lead. First, as an Infantry Officer in the US Marine Corps. Then as a strategy consultant with McKinsey & Company
And now, he’s Chief Operating Officer of the VC-backed & fast-growing PadSplit.
PadSplit is disrupting the affordable housing industry by creating safe, attractive, and respectable co-living environments. One room at a time, often for workforce housing. Unlike AirBnB, this is long-term rentals
Based in Atlanta, PadSplit has 1,200 bedrooms listed & its average rental is 8.5 months
Clearly, Frank & PadSplit are onto something. Because they’ve been backed by a who’s who of early-stage ventures. Including Impact Engine, Cox Enterprises, Kapor Capital, Techstars, 1984 Ventures, Base Ventures and Core Innovation Capital.
But this episode isn’t about funding. It’s about leadership.
And how Frank is scaling his team at PadSplit.
