ScaleCo is pleased to announce that Ashley Alber, formerly ScaleCo Principal, and Donnie Bedney, ScaleCo Operating Partner and President of PSP Metrics (“PSP”), have recently been promoted to Partner.

Ms. Alber joined ScaleCo in early 2022 as Principal, where she held the primary role of leading operations of ScaleCo partner companies, overseeing developments in accounting and finance, team alignment, organic revenue growth, technology enablement and corporate development. In her role as Partner, Ms. Alber will continue her role as leader of partner company operations, as well as ScaleCo internal operations, deal execution, fundraising and due diligence.

Mr. Bedney joined ScaleCo in 2020 as an Operating Partner and has since led PSP Metrics, a ScaleCo Fund IV partner company, as President.
