Why A Change Now
About Our Team
CEO & Founder
About Brian Walsh
Walsh loves working to make innovations come to life. Originally ‘hooked’ on cleantech, Walsh made his first mark in Washington D.C. where he worked with the emerging hydrogen and fuel cell industries and policy makers to address market barriers. Walsh then became a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley at the leading cleantech VC fund. Ultimately, Walsh wanted to ‘be the entrepreneur’ and grew tired of all of the ‘me too’ startups in Silicon Valley, while also becoming very passionate about the agricultural sector and its massive inefficiencies.
Walsh has a B.S. in Physics from Tufts University and an M.B.A. from MIT Sloan School of Management.
CTO & Founder
About Karim Gabriel
Gabriel is a materials and acoustics ‘guy’ who loves innovation and solving complex problems. He also loves animals and keeps a small herd of goats at his home. After several technology-related stints at both small and large companies, Gabriel decided to combine his passion for animals with his passion for innovation. This was the very early concept for Vital Herd and Gabriel had the opportunity to pursue it while working within a leading government contractor’s innovation group. Gabriel met Walsh and the rest is history.
Gabriel has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.

Army Of Contractors
Experts In Many Different Disciplines
About Army Of Contractors
The Vital Herd™ solution is simple and effective to use, but very complicated and ‘high tech’ on the inside. To make it a reality, Vital Herd™ has recruited, quite literally, a small army of experts from many different fields, which the animal management sector has never used before.
