Painting With Numbers with Randall Bolten is our guest of The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet. Randall Bolten’s 30-year career in Silicon Valley includes nearly 20 years as a CFO for both public companies and startups. The Princeton University economics graduate earned his MBA at Stanford University.

Bolten has served as CFO for public companies BroadVision and Phoenix Technologies, as well as startups Arcot Systems, BioCAD, and Teknekron. He also held senior financial management positions at Oracle and Tandem Computers. 
He now runs Lucidity (, a consulting practice focused on short engagements with specific deliverables that include enterprise business models, management and financial reporting packages, and incentive compensation plans that work.
The son of a CIA intelligence officer and a history professor, Bolten appreciates the power of clearly and effectively communicating anything, and not just numbers, the subject of his book. The seasoned financial executive is skilled at investor relations, designing compensation plans, delivering innovative reporting packages, developing effective pricing models, managing equity incentive plans, and enabling finance departments to work effectively with other groups such as sales.
Bolten is passionately devoted to stirring a discussion about how the way we present financials and other numbers affects intelligent decision-making and affects an organization’s growth and success.
He divides his time between Glenbrook, NV and Washington, DC, and also keeps an office in Menlo Park, in the heart of Silicon Valley.  When not working, he enjoys the tranquility of the Sierras. He is the father of two daughters.
