As one of its first employees, Tracy Everson has been front-row-and-center to the powerful growth of ITR Group. In fact, she’s helped create it.
While Tracy has been responsible for all matters of finance and accounting—receivables, payables, payroll, administering 401(k) plans, cash flow, budgeting, and ongoing financial reporting—this is not a siloed role as it is in some companies. ITR Group requires a more nimble team approach, one which leans on Tracy’s communication strength and the inter-department trust and collaboration she has helped engineer.
There’s also her ability to manage complexity. Tracy has helped build systems and set expectations for excellence that allow ITR Group to lead the industry.
When she’s not knee-deep in a spreadsheet, she volunteers for various youth-sports organizations, bowls and plays softball.
