Wendover is named after “Wendover Road” in Charlotte, NC where Richard and Anthony (and other friends) lived between 2000 and 2002. Richard and Anthony became friends in 2000 while working in the Merger and Acquisition department of First Union Securities, formerly Bowles Hollowell Conner & Co. Richard graduated from Wake Forest University as a Business major with the goal of becoming an entrepreneur. Anthony graduated from Bucknell University with a double major in Economics and Finance (magna cum laude). After enjoying two years in Charlotte working with mid-sized entrepreneurial companies, both Richard and Anthony accepted positions at separate private equity firms in Chicago, IL where they gained invaluable experience working with a range of companies within the building products, consumer products, business services, specialty finance and home décor industries. At 26, they left the world of finance with the goal and dream to build and create the best wall décor company possible. Today, this is now the goal of a much larger team working together to be excellent.
