How do you find a work-life balance in the busy world of treasury?
In this episode of The Treasury Career Corner podcast, I’m joined again by Wade Olsen, Co-Founder of Treasury Suite, for part two of a special two-part episode.
We cover some more of Wade’s impressive career by delving into his time as Central Treasury Officer for Chugach Alaska Corporation, which eventually turned into a remote role.
Wade shares his thoughts about remote work and the challenges of maintaining a good work-life balance when working from home. He has previously spoken about this on LinkedIn as the pandemic made remote work essential for many.
Wade then explains his ethos behind Treasury Suite, and how it was designed as a simpler alternative to more complex systems.
Treasury Suite is a treasury technology solutions company that provides unique cash management, banking, and investor relations solutions. Treasury Suite exists to empower any treasury department, regardless of size or industry, with a leading global, scalable cloud-based treasury management system.
Prior to Treasury Suite, Wade worked as Central Treasury Officer for Chugach Alaska Corporation, Treasurer & VP Investor Relations for AMI Semiconductor, Treasurer & Director Investor Relations for Iomega Corporation, VP of Operations & Treasurer for Consonus, and Director Investor Relations & Treasurer for TenFold.
He is a Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) with a Master’s in International Management and MBA in Finance from Thunderbird School of Global Management. Wade also holds certificates in Japanese Business and Law and a BA in Finance with a Minor in Japanese.
