Esteemed Executive Rings Bell
Having worked alongside some of the most successful entrepreneurs to help grow emerging brands into a thriving, multimillion-dollar business, Candace Crawford checks the box. “Ringing the bell is a big item off my bucket list,” says Crawford, whose advice is sought by companies striving for her cross-disciplinary leadership style.
Crawford began her career working for large companies, such as Price Waterhouse Cooper, focusing on technical finance, mergers and acquisitions, financial analyses, and comptroller work. She then moved into emerging brands and began working with entrepreneurs in the early 1990s. She credits her success with emerging brands to her background and early experiences with large corporations.
She quickly understood the dynamics of companies going public or remaining private, bankruptcy and turnaround, and early-stage growth. Her early finance experience spanned public and private debt, treasury, financial reporting, operations, and corporate accounting.

Amazing deduction skills
Watched her in Board meetings identifying risks and issues and then recommending solutions certainly learned a lot.
Candace is truly a world-class C-level executive. She has done it all from running large corporations with 10-figure revenues to small venture-backed companies needing specialty financing. Her level of experience allows her to say, “been there, done that”. She is smart, confident, connected in the financial community, and cool under fire. I have enjoyed working with her immensely. She is the consummate team player, and works hard at creating open lines of communication within the various departments at Bossa Nova.
