Defiance Ventures today announced Ashley Love has joined as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Ashley brings accounting, finance, and M&A experience from both private and public companies in a variety of industries, including tech.
“I have watched Ashley grow her career over the past few years and have always been impressed with her intelligence, decision making, and especially work ethic,” said Defiance CEO John Espey. He added, “as the complexity of our portfolio and operations has grown it became clear to the board and me that we needed someone with a track record of managing portfolio company finances and M&A transaction support. I am very pleased that we were able to attract someone of Ashley’s caliber to our team.”
“I’m really excited to work alongside such an accomplished executive team. Defiance’s propensity for rapid growth, as well as it’s appetite for diversity in background and approach initially attracted me, but watching the team at work has far exceeded my expectations. I have no doubt we’re going to accomplish great things together,” said Love.
