Thea Dudley started out working with her subcontractor Dad, and shortly thereafter realized that manual labor was not for her. So, she moved into the power seat of the business — granting credit and collecting the money. She has spent her 30+ year career working for manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, contractors, and subcontractors by leading credit teams, aiding accounts payable, and bringing order to cash processes. She currently serves as Suppli’s first Brand Ambassador, is a founding member of Women of LBM, Levelset ProAdvisory Panel, numerous credit associations, and National Insulation Contractors Exchange. She writes a credit Q&A Column and Webex series for LBM Journal. Thea works with credit departments across the country to secure healthy AR management and proactive credit and collection practices.
