Childers also previously served as an infantry captain in the United States Army. His experience includes M&A advisory, financial auditing, operations management, and finance and IT-related program management.
Childers received his Bachelor of Science in business administration from Appalachian State University and his Masters of Science in accountancy at Wake Forest University.
Tirone brings 22 years of experience working with both private equity and corporate clients in the financial services, retail, technology and energy industries. In his new role, Tirone will be responsible for leading projects, growing relationships, and managing client service teams in the southeast.
Throughout his career, Tirone has held leadership positions in public accounting, consulting and operational services, including the role of chief financial officer of two private equity-owned companies. Most recently, as CFO for SWDS Holdings, Tirone successfully led the company through its first external audit and consolidated the financial reporting for eight separate corporations onto a single accounting platform. Prior to his CFO roles, Geoff spent 17 years in the assurance and transaction advisory practices of KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
