Executive Profile
I'm a senior finance leader who thrives when working closely with the executive team in removing obstacles to directing the company beyond targeted growth. Early in my career I learned the value of looking beyond how things are currently done in order to continually search for how we can do things better. Working in cooperation with senior leadership throughout the organization, my finance teams are built with this focus and the results are enhanced analytics and dynamic reporting tools.
