CFO Selections is pleased to announce that Debbie Treen, a former mayor of Bothell, Washington, has joined our consulting practice in Seattle. Debbie is a senior accounting and finance professional with a perspective that is both wide and deep, integrating experience from publicly traded, privately held, and start-up businesses. She utilizes concise analytical metrics and financial models, delivering clear forecasts and executable strategies for maximizing company profitability.
As Chief Financial Officer, Debbie established accounting, administration, HR, and IT operations for Smart Cremation at the company’s startup. She increased gross margin by 7%, saved $250K in overhead costs by locating multiple functions in a shared service environment, and facilitated a necessary staff reduction while maintaining productivity and team morale. During her tenure as VP of Finance and CAO of the Neptune Society, revenue grew from $23M to $53M and net income from $2M to $8M. She also successfully relocated the company’s home office from California to Florida, recruiting and training all new staff and seamlessly transferring functions.
