Devin Sanderson, Founder and President

Whether he is fishing for snook and redfish along the mangroves or running 150 miles offshore in search of giant swordfish, it is clear what Devin was meant to do.  His love for fishing and the outdoors started as far back as he can remember and the more he fished, the more the passion/obsession grew within. Today, Devin strives to keep that resource he loves so much sustainable for future generations in founding Coastal Impact Fund. His vision is simple: Make a positive impact and a sustainable marine environment for the next generation.

Devin is a highly regarded and accomplished executive in the financial services industry.  He brings a wealth of experience in a fast paced investment banking environment providing financing solutions in both the debt and equity capital markets, including project identification, evaluation, and structuring of tax advantaged transactions as well as managing the performance of staff and funds to maximize investor benefits and company profitability.  Devin graduated from the University of South Florida, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance.
