General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer

Dana is the General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at OpenView. She is integral to the management team, supporting core business operations, internal operations, and day-to-day legal and compliance matters.


OpenView’s emphasis on people was a differentiator to me. Their focus on individual and team development through a lens of continuous rapid improvement results in making its people and its companies’ better versions of themselves. When people feel supported, they thrive and this is evidenced throughout the portfolio and across the firm – that’s how the team has continued to have success and ultimately why I choose OpenView.


Before joining OpenView, Dana was General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at SV Health Investors, a growth equity and venture capital firm dedicated to healthcare and life sciences investments.  She also served as General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Athena Capital Advisors,  a registered investment adviser specializing in the management of assets for HNW individuals, foundations and endowments and held various legal, compliance and operations roles at Fisher Lynch Capital and MPM Capital

Dana began her career working in the Corporate Department/Private Investments Funds Group at Proskauer Rose LLP.
