Director of Billing and Finance
Debbie’s husband, Bill, is the go-to numbers guy. He makes sure all our proverbial “t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted”. If you’ve had any work done with DesignMe Creative Group, you’ve seen his email cross your desk. Bill sends monthly invoices, tracks our income and expenses, and makes sure everyone gets paid.
Bill graduated with a business degree from Purdue University and an MBA from Indiana University. Although he is a CPA (he took the test on a dare in Grad School and passed), his real career and passion is New Ventures in Energy Development. He worked 28 years for a major energy company in Houston, which took him all over the world. In 2007, he “retired” and now runs his own Energy Investment business – Nova Atlantic – from his office along side DesignMe.
Chief Dog Officer and Security Alarm
When you arrive at the office of DesignMe Creative Group you will most likely be greeted by a very happy, very energetic, and very friendly Jack Russell Terrier named Nala. Nala, also known as the Chief Dog Officer, is responsible for keeping the yard clear of elephants and alligators. She does a very good job, as we haven’t seen a single elephant or alligator since we started. Nala also keeps the office on high alert when a vehicle pulls in for a meeting. She is the household pet and loves any and all attention visitors are willing to give.
Mascot and Overall Good Egg
Chico is a chicken. Well actually, Chico is a rooster that, when you press his stomach, he clucks like a chicken. Chico gives us comic relief during our long days behind the computer. He’s been known to pass on phenomenal super hero type powers – a term we call “Chicken Power”. You know – those “Aha!” moments. Anyone who walks through the doors of our office in Falmouth, Maine is subject to Chico’s magical Chicken Power. So beware … you never know what creative or geeky ideas will be flying around.
