Overview: Nexxus Holdings is a Santa Barbara-based investment firm, managing the internal capital of the founder as well as external capital. The future strategy of Nexxus includes further raising of third-party capital in which Nexxus will serve as investment manager – across industries, geographies, company states, public v private, and instruments within the capital structure.
Experience: 12-15+ years of progressive legal experience with foundational training in a well-respected law firm followed by in-house experience. Ideal candidate will have proven business savvy and strategic vision, as well as experience with sophisticated transactions, corporate governance/securities, financing, commercial contracts, and corporate and legal compliance. As the first General Counsel for this organization, the ideal candidate will have experience managing a lean legal function, as well as be able to roll up their sleeves. There is a strong preference for proven self-starters who have been successful in nimble, lean, fast-paced environments, and who bring strong problem solving skills along with the ability to manage details on a number of fronts simultaneously.
Compensation: Competitive package commensurate with experience.
Relocation: California location preferred but, in any event, will require a candidate to be located in PST time zone. While willing to consider remote candidates, the GC should expect to travel to Santa Barbara regularly – so the ideal is someone within driving distance.
Bar: Member in good standing of at least one U.S. state with the ability to become Registered In-House Counsel (RIHC) in the State of California.
