Debbie currently operates as Everywhere’s CFO, but that wasn’t always the case! Her first start-up job made a big stink. She was Financial Controller for Giorgio of Beverly Hills, a perfume company that was a big hit in the late 1980s. She learned how scents are bought by the barrel and how marketers bottle that magic.
After the company was sold and she moved to Atlanta, Debbie decided to become an entrepreneur herself, operating Debbie Griffiths CPA LLC, for the last 26 years. She specializes in CFO contract work, bringing disciplined accounting experience in marketing, professional services, manufacturing, construction, and perfume.
Debbie graduated magna cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she now serves on the business school advisory board. She is past president of the Georgia affiliate of the American Women’s Society of CPAs, alumna of Deloitte, and former clerk of session at Trinity Presbyterian Church. In her free time, she’ll play her mean tennis backhand against you – watch out!
