About Theory R Properties

Theory R Properties was founded in 2002 by Gary Daichendt, the former executive vice president of worldwide operations for Cisco Systems Inc. After a successful career that included being the number 2 executive of what was once the world’s highest market cap company, Gary desired to start an investment firm that would offer not only great returns but also reflect a high level of integrity in the marketplace.

The name ‘Theory R’ is meant to reflect a constant reminder to “do what is Right.” As a young executive, Gary became convicted when listening to a Christian radio talk station where the guest espoused that when contemplating a business decision, it becomes readily apparent as to what “the Right Thing to Do is” if we will only ask ourselves that question. The guest referred to this as Theory R. Gary used this phrase and philosophy in his career from that day forward and was delighted to name his investment firm after it.
