Will Deaton
Director of Human Resources / Senior Associate
“Be honest and vulnerable to failing—then learn and grow from it.”

Will knows that when success is born out of leadership and personal growth, it produces the highest form of success—the meaningful kind that grows and prospers. With roots in the oil and gas industry, he has developed a personal coaching approach that promotes entrepreneurial teams as an effective way for businesses to unleash talent at every level of the organization. He has learned that while numbers are important, nothing says “do great work” like creativity, collaboration, and heart. 


Before joining Inventure, Will served as Vice President of Strategic Development in the oil and gas industry. He attended Samford University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration degree, and his Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at the University of Houston, C.T. Bauer College of Business. He loves spending time with his kids and has been seen wearing out the front seat of his favorite roller coaster ride.
