Vanessa Mathews, Founder & Chief Resilience Officer of Asfalis Advisors, a Business Resilience Advisory Firm, is also a self-proclaimed foodie, travel enthusiast, pet-lover & avid fan of hit TV show, The Profit.
Asfalis Advisors, was created after Mathews took a particular interest in crisis management, when as a young woman, she found herself caught up in a natural disaster for which her hometown of Atlanta wasn’t prepared.
She refers to this event as “The Perfect Storm”, for many reasons. One reason is that it would spark, what would later become, the foundation of her industry focus & business interest. The second reason, is that it gave her a deeper understanding, compassion & appreciation for victims of crises.
Determined to prevent others from experiencing the same life-threatening circumstances in the future, she immediately went to work for the county emergency management agency and, eventually, brought her passion to global companies.
