Vanessa Zeman Ashlock

Born and raised in Australia, Vanessa established herself as a visionary growth champion early in her career which has enabled her to grow as a cross-functional leader spearheading business turnarounds, rapid growth, and financial stability for global STEM organizations operating in highly regulated B2B, B2C, and B2G industry verticals. In her current capacity as Chief Financial Operating Officer (CFOO), Vanessa deploys this expertise to provide strategic direction for global finance, operations, governance, and compliance functions.

Vanessa’s impact has not been limited to operational optimization alone. As a mother of two young girls, her personal passion resides in promoting diversity through community outreach, a passion which was ignited in her formative years by a 12 month voluntary tenure in post-war Croatia and her continued involvement to date through family ministry throughout the USA.
