We’re a team of former law enforcement, engineers, and industry leaders driven by a mission to see the end of human trafficking.
Founder, Chief Executive Officer
Nic McKinley is an entrepreneur, former military special operator, and ex-CIA operative who founded and led two multimillion-dollar tech companies. A pioneer in visioning Data as a Service solutions to disrupting illicit commodity markets, Nic is passionate about solving society’s most pressing issues through cost-effective technical solutions.
Nic grew up in Montana but left to join US military special operations as a US Air Force Pararescueman. After more than a decade in Pararescue, Nic worked in private intelligence start-ups before being recruited into a specialized unit at the Central Intelligence Agency that provided unique capabilities and expertise in response to the critical operational needs of the Intelligence Community.
In 2014, Nic founded DeliverFund, the only donor-funded solution to human trafficking that delivers proprietary data and technology to law enforcement, allowing them to take down human traffickers effectively.
Despite being dubbed “The Real Jack Ryan” by VICE Media, Nic’s most important role is as a husband and father leading his family in a life of service and adventure in Montana. When he is not in his office, Nic can be found on a lake, on the ski slopes, camping, climbing vertical rock or ice in the mountains, with his nose in a book learning something new, or spending downtime with his extraordinary wife.
Sean has held a variety of IT roles at several institutions both privately and publicly held since 2006. With a multitude of technical skills and the ability to translate analytics into actionable intelligence, Sean is uniquely qualified to coordinate the IT efforts of DeliverFund’s operations.
Because of the nature of DeliverFund’s work, Sean was one of the first hires made and he continues to passionately pursue the mission. In his words, DeliverFund is not just a job or a career, it is his purpose.
