Oliver Ressler, our resident west-coaster, has been passionate about these verticals his entire life. While at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service, Oliver was a Hoyas Basketball season ticket holder, getting to Capital One arena any chance he got. If he wasn’t watching a game, he was usually found playing pickup in the rec center.
Following Georgetown, Oliver began his career in investment banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he worked in both the Financial Institutions and Industrials, groups. In 2016, he went on to pursue his entrepreneurial passions, opening and operating ‘The Press Shop’, a fast-casual sandwich shop in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood, following which he eventually joined Courtside in 2018.
Oliver serves on the Board of the National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Hawks, a position in which he gets to continually support his basketball obsession. When he isn’t helping evaluate companies or watching NBA league pass, you can catch him cycling, hooping, or skiing in the winter.
