KATIE ASHCRAFT – CFO
Katie Ashcraft has a long record of helping to position members of start-up roles, and assisting various organizations to grow. Before indulging her taste for the adrenaline-charged environment of smaller organizations, and establishing her own accounting/finance consulting firm, Books2Tax, Ms. Ashcraft enjoyed increasingly responsible positions at Bellsouth Corporation, Unisys Corporation and Hughes Aircraft Company.
Katie gets professionally involved in whatever it takes to assist in the development and execution of a business strategy, adding value, and providing the best financial and accounting services to companies from metropolitan Atlanta, GA to businesses headquartered outside of the United States. Her Modus Operandi is all about supporting and continuing growth while exceeding the internal and/or external customer needs of a firm. This is vital to an outfit like DJ Central, which primarily works in the TV industry and is all about giving the viewers what they want.
Involved in bettering her community wherever she has lived, Ms. Ashcraft is a devoted volunteer. A life-long equestrian, she has served in leadership capacities for the American Paint Horse Association and the Georgia Paint Horse Club. She is a life-time First Class Girl Scout and was selected as an ambassador from the state of North Carolina to the International Headquarters in Switzerland while in High School, and continued to serve for numerous years as a Troop Leader in the north Fulton County area.
Katie is a Charter Founding member and was Treasurer of Alpha Delta Pi at her University. She held past Board positions for Bulletin.net in the UK, Blue Pie in Australia (the USA Entity) and Phoenix Rugby in Alpharetta, GA. She currently serves as Treasurer of the local Habitat for Humanity Towns/Union Counties, Inc. She holds a BSBA degree in Marketing from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, and an MBA degree from California State University-Fullerton, in Fullerton, CA. In addition, she is an Advanced Certified Pro Advisor for Intuit and holds PTIN certification/registration with IRS. With her wealth of experience, DJ Central is sure to avoid the pitfalls that doomed many other networks just like us.
As the external USA Accountant for Blue Pie Productions USA, ORDIOR, DJ Central TV and Metal Central TV, Katie works with the board to oversee and manage all accounting requirements and general reporting for the respective company boards. Katie is a valued team member and we look forward to continued success with financial wisdom and guidance.
