About Mac Bartine

Mac Bartine

Hi – I’m Mac, an entrepreneur living in Knoxville, TN with my wife and twin step-sons.

I’ve been growing, investing in and mentoring web-based startups since I finished grad school in 1996.

Since October of 2015, I’ve been the CEO of SmartRIA, a SaaS company that simplifies compliance for the wealth management industry. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, getting out in nature, writing, painting, playing and listening to live music and reading good books.

In this blog, I intend to write about the intersection of leading a high growth startup while striving to have a life well lived, as well as thoughts on the state of regulatory compliance, the arts, and anything else that I find worthy of discussion at the moment.

Thanks for taking a moment to learn more about me.

Onwards and upwards!
– Mac

On Conflicts of Interest

I occasionally talk about stuff I’m buying, using or that I just like. There are no affiliate links or other monetary benefits to me for these product or service mentions.

That said, I do occasionally mention the yoga video company run by my wife Jill, which I obviously benefit from too when she succeeds.

She’s a true yoga badass, has recorded over 250 yoga video classes since the beginning of the pandemic with a wide variety of focuses and ranging from 15 minutes to over an hour. I highly encourage you to check her out. She’s the bee’s knees.

I also occasionally may talk about SmartRIA, which I run and I am one of the shareholders.
