NEW ORLEANS — LBM Journal credit and collections columnist Thea Dudley is among six industry veterans who have joined Levelset’s inaugural Credit Management Advisory Board. As a board, the group will work together to share their knowledge, with the mission of helping others be the most promoted, highest paid, and most efficient financial professionals in the industry.
“The lack of helpful resources available to credit management in the construction industry has been a problem my entire career,” said Thea Dudley. “I’m excited to be part of this Advisory board and help everyone who manages construction finances get better at their job, gain confidence and get promoted. I wish something like this existed when I started in this industry,” she added.
The advisory board will help shape the future of credit management for the building materials and equipment industries through webinars and round table discussions, teaching classes, publishing content, and sharing their knowledge with 300,000+ monthly Levelset visitors and users, the company says. Members will be able to connect to other industry professionals in the Levelset community.
Levelset’s Credit Management Advisory Board consists of professionals who have spent the majority of their careers managing, consulting, or reporting on the finances and credit departments in the construction industry.
