“Over the nearly 10 years I’ve known Beth, she has consistently impressed me with her knowledge, insight, and ability to distill complex issues and identify solutions. She was one of the first people I called to help me evaluate the legitimacy of the [shadowbox] tool and understand its potential in a crowded software services market. Her review was critical for me in understanding the opportunities and hurdles I would face in commercializing the product and scaling the company. She immediately understood and effectively conveyed to my team the critical objectives we needed to prioritize, and then followed up with quality suggestions as to how to do so. Perhaps most importantly, Beth is really great to work with. She is a rare breed in that she’s not only an accomplished finance executive, but she’s also an excellent listener and communicator. It is clear that she is invested in her client’s success and I would highly recommend her services to anyone who asked.” – Gregory A. Stein. Chief Executive Officer, ShadowBox

Whether it’s charting an M&A path, determining a smart plan for growth, optimizing systems or affecting cross-functional efficiencies, Beth has an incredible amount of experience and she delivers results.
As a leader, she creates loyal, engaged teams because she truly cares about her employees, and she helps them connect their own roles to the greater success of the company. Over the twenty years that I have known and worked for her, I have seen her lead finance departments at companies both big and small through times of massive transformation. The one constant is that her teams excel because her passion for what she does is contagious – she expects high performance from her people, and she creates an atmosphere that gives them the tools and knowledge to succeed.
