Justin Dopierala

Founder and President

Justin Dopierala is President and Founder of DOMO Capital. He received his Bachelor of Science from Concordia University, Wisconsin (2005), graduating summa cum laude and recognized as the most outstanding undergraduate student of his class. He completed his MBA at Concordia the following year.

Justin has been the portfolio manager for DOMO Capital Management since the portfolio's inception (2008). His years at DOMO have been enhanced by corporate experience with Harley-Davidson, Case New Holland, and FedEx Services. His work as an auditor in the areas of Information Technology, Plant Operations, and Finance honed his analytical skills and enable DOMO's sophisticated financial models.

Investing began at an early age for Justin, when he convinced his parents to place a trade for him at age 15 using money he'd saved from mowing lawns. This interest found a focus and structure when a college professor encouraged him to read The Intelligent Investor, the principles of which remain a critical component of the DOMO philosophy to this day.

Justin describes his interest in investing as a combination of a passion for competition, desire to do well for himself and clients, and the intellectual rigor of the discipline. A college football Hall of Fame inductee, Justin attributes his athletic and scholastic success as early validation of the same elements that drive the DOMO discipline: Hard work digging deep into the details, combined with an uncanny ability to stay on course by remembering the big picture. These disciplines enable him to meet the greatest challenge he believes a portfolio manager faces; filtering out short term noise in order to remain convicted in longer term investable ideas.

Justin is married with four very active children (3 sons and 1 daughter), and his family is his greatest passion outside of DOMO; although, he does admit to staying current on the Packers and enjoys every chance he gets to play piano.

Dave Ribbens


Dave began in the Financial Services industry early, joining Northwestern Mutual as a college agent shortly after his 18th birthday. Dave graduated from Lawrence University in 1985; his major was Economics. He began his career with Valley Trust Company, spending the next nine years working in a variety of client facing positions. He moved to Firstar (now US Bancorp) in 1994, where he initially helped create a new class of shares and associated business plan for the Portico Funds. His career took him and family to Portland OR, where he ran the western half of US Bancorp's broker dealer. He then took over the task of building out a non-proprietary distribution effort for the First American Funds, US Bancorp's fund family (now part of Nuveen). Dave then moved back to Wisconsin to join Heartland Advisors, leading all distribution efforts and eventually becoming President and Managing Partner.

Dave left Heartland in 2016 and retired to take a role as Independent Director for the Northwestern Mutual Series Funds as well as start his own consulting practice. Justin and Dave met early 2017, and after many conversations decided to become partners. Dave will contribute general business experience and communication expertise, while Justin will continue to focus on managing client portfolios.

Dave is married to Lois, his High School sweetheart. Spoiling their six grandchildren is a big part of their lives, as is building their new home in Door County, Wisconsin.
