An advocate of transparency and organizational partnership, there’s no one better to manage the Artefact purse strings than Collin. As Director of Finance and Accounting, Collin works closely with day-to-day financial activities, as well as helping our strategic vision thrive. Whether he’s refining a process or reimagining the way we think about business and targets, Collin strives for organizational improvement and to leave things in a better place than they were found.
Collin has a particular skill for wrangling the abstract side of finance, especially when working with project-based organizations. After serving in various financial roles with the Publicis Groupe – including Starcom, Publicis Media and Razorfish – in Chicago (Go Bears!) his career brought him to Seattle. Collin has a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Accounting from Illinois State University and is also a licensed CPA in the state of Washington.
Collin tries to spend as much time outdoors as possible, whether it be hiking, backpacking, fishing, mountain biking or building a new single track. His passion for the great outdoors heavily influenced his move to verdant North Bend, WA: population 6,000.
