He founded the firm in 2004 to provide investment advice to several of the nation’s leading hedge and mutual fund firms. His approach revolves around identifying net changes, opportunities and misunderstandings in the marketplace. Gomes has built an enviable reputation for identifying low risk, high reward situations using the IT industry’s proprietary metrics and extensive network of contacts.

He began his career at International Data Corporation, where he led the buy-side investment research practice. Most recently, he was Director of Investment Research at AMR Research at a globally renowned IT consulting firm (later acquired by Gartner Group). There, he drove the expansion of the business unit into a multi-million dollar business and oversaw more than 100 Wall Street institutions during his tenure.

He also published a book called Faster Than Forty, which details the diet, lifestyle, training techniques and other physiological maneuvers that have allowed him to return to track and field after a 13-year hiatus.
Gomez has since quit athletics and quit the business world. He is now committed to coaching high school cross country in Miami Beach, Florida.
