As Big Nerd Ranch’s CEO, Stacy oversees the creation of world-class digital products that support large-scale businesses around the world, including Google and Amazon.
I oversee the amazing lineup of talent at Big Nerd Ranch.
Before becoming CEO, Stacy was BNR’s COO/CFO, handling the company’s operations and finance. Stacy’s passion for employee development and continuous growth ensures that BNR’s culture of learning and collaboration is always at the forefront. Thanks to her dedication, she has ensured the growth of more than a 100 talents while creating an environment of continuous learning to deepen their expertise. They, in turn, now contribute to the development of other talents through trainings and best-selling books. She often speaks about BNR’s unique workplace culture at conferences and loves to be surrounded by people who are also passionate about their work.
Prior to Big Nerd Ranch, she worked in various capacities as a public accounting expert for public and private companies, including Arthur Andersen. Fittingly, she is also a former high school teacher (she taught in Florida for three years).
Outside of Big Nerd Ranch, Stacy sits on the Board of Advisors, Metro Atlanta CoC and is an active member of the CFO Leadership Council (where she speaks at conferences). As a kid, Stacy dreamed of being a vet, but discovered she doesn’t like getting dirty or the way animals smell. It was a great thing for BNR. When she isn’t working, Stacy enjoys coaching, playing and umpiring girls lacrosse.
