Having come from very humble beginnings to national notoriety and great wealth, Fay’s ability to

connect and inspire those he meets is unmatched. As a young intermediary venture capitalist, Fay learned how to harness the power of connecting money with great ideas and people. His first milestone business venture, Around the Clock Fitness (ATC), was built from the ground up into one of the most successful, independently owned health club companies in Florida. Fay took the company public on NASDAQ:

Twenty years later, Fay has employed over 20,000 people, assisted hundreds of companies in

negotiating mergers, hostile takeovers, and board deadlocks, and mentored and coached numerous up-and-coming entrepreneurs. He also provides investment capital, growth plans, management and exit strategy and what he calls “shadow CEO” services. A popular public speaker, Fay has spoken at a multitude of corporate events, inspiring associates and elevating C-suite teams, while sharing his secrets to success in an increasingly complex and globally connected world.

Fay said: “My real passion is finding bright and driven young entrepreneurs and investing my time and effort into bridging their success gap. If I can do it, ANYONE CAN! Very few believed in me on the way up. For some, that would have ended their journey before it began. For me, that only motivated me more. I’m here to fuel the fire of the next generation of entrepreneurs, not extinguish it.”
