CARRIE REED

Partner

Professional Background

Carrie originally started her professional career in Florida, where she worked in banking and later as a VP in commercial lending for Sun Trust Banks, a large regional bank.  During this time, Carrie developed several very strong relationships and learned the importance of financial stability, with lessons that she now applies upon clients’ request for general business consultation. 

 

Carrie has most recently put these skills to use providing the Oregon Shakespeare Festival support as United Strategies & Consulting assists the organization in its current turnaround and rebirth as a once again thriving leader in the arts and as an economic driver for the region.

 

Carrie recently worked as the COO/CFO for a local housing development firm.  In this capacity, Carrie was responsible for the overall operations of the company as well as overseeing its financial health. During this time Carrie also led the company’s efforts in the area of government relations.  Due to the nature of the building process in Oregon and its oftentimes difficult land use and zoning codes, Carrie led the company’s efforts in building relationships with local governments so that projects could move forward in an efficient way, but also in a manner that built and preserved strong relationships with the local government officials.  

 

These efforts allowed Carrie to build trust with these officials, which allowed her company to successfully conduct business with local government entities.

 

Prior to her role as a COO/CFO for the housing development company, Carrie owned her own business as a real estate appraiser for 15 years.  During this time, Carrie also started a local towing company with her brother.  As the leader of the company, Carrie was thrust into a predominantly male industry, but thrived, leading the company successfully before selling and concentrating fulltime on appraising.

 

Throughout her professional career, Carrie has learned the importance of building strong relationships, working with people from all backgrounds to find a solution that meets their needs and the persistence to be successful in challenging professional environments.

Political Experience

Carrie previously worked on the staff of Oregon State Senator Ron Grensky and has worked on various campaigns in Southern Oregon.

Community Engagement

Carrie is currently a member of the Central Point Citizens Advisory Committee, a member of the Rogue Yacht Club, and a member of the Upper Rogue River Cabin Association.
