My guest on this episode of the Treasury Career Corner podcast is Craig Jeffery, the Managing Partner at Strategic Treasurer LLC. Craig is familiar with podcasting as he hosts the ‘Treasury Update Podcast,’ where I had the pleasure to speak from the other end of the microphone as the interviewee rather than the host.
In this episode, it’s my turn to take back the mic and interview Craig about how he built his career and where he sees himself and the treasury profession going next.
Craig Jeffery formed Strategic Treasurer in 2004 in Metro Atlanta to provide corporate, educational and government entities direct access to cutting-edge, comprehensive assistance with all treasury and financial process needs. He currently serves as managing partner for the firm, as well as founder and host of The Treasury Update Podcast, a leading industry podcast program that recently celebrated one year on-air with a major benchmark of listeners in more than 85 countries.
Craig’s 25 years of financial and treasury experience as a practitioner and consultant have uniquely qualified him to lead the Strategic Treasurer team in helping organizations craft realistic goals and quickly achieve significant benefits that carry them into the future.
