Briana Helt Promoted to Corporate Controller at Felins
We are excited to announce that effective immediately, Briana Helt has been promoted to Corporate Controller at Felins! In this new role Briana will lead our entire Finance and Accounting Team as well as IT. Let’s celebrate Briana's incredible career journey at Felins! Briana received her college education at UW-Milwaukee. Initially unsure of what she wanted to do, Briana eventually settled on Elementary Education. She soon realized that her passion lied elsewhere and found her calling in Accounting after taking her first class.
After gaining valuable experience working at Ernst and Young, one of the largest audit firms in the world, Briana decided to pursue a career in industry accounting versus public. She applied for the Staff Accountant position at Felins in 2015 and quickly moved up the ranks. She was promoted to Manager of Finance and Analytics and then to Controller. Now, eight years later, she is the Corporate Controller, a vital role within the company.
Briana is thrilled about her new role and says, "I love how involved in the business I get to be. We are a growing company and with that brings new opportunities to learn new things within the business whether it's banking or leasing or rentals, I'm excited for the opportunity to do this now!"
Aside from her successful career, Briana is also a devoted mother to her 2-year-old son. She loves reading to him at night, especially his favorite book, Little Blue Truck, and playing "airplane Bryce" where she picks him up and they enthusiastically pretend he's an airplane. In her free time, Briana is also an avid golfer, and her dream is to play a course in Ireland right on the water. She even played Erin Hills while 6 months pregnant and received high praise from her caddy who said she was the best he’s ever caddied for!
