Corey Kalbfleisch

Chief Financial Officer

Chief Financial Officer

As WE’s chief financial officer, Corey Kalbfleisch leads the agency’s finance, accounting, legal and corporate governance efforts on a global level.

Corey has worked in finance his entire career, first in banking, then in senior finance roles in the payments industry. Before joining WE in 2009, he was the CFO of Trustwave, a cybersecurity and managed security services provider. Corey’s proud of the growth WE has seen during his tenure, and of the part he played in taking it from a $100M company to close to $150M. He manages the finance team, leads WE’s acquisition efforts — organizing, structuring, conducting due diligence and ensuring legal compliance — and helps weave our purpose and our drive to put people at the center of everything we do into the company’s budgeting and planning. Corey strongly believes that profit maximalization and corporate purpose don’t have to be opposed — not only can they coexist, they can actually drive each other.

Outside of work, Corey is a gardener, an avid reader and a hiker. During his sabbatical in 2017, he hiked 500 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail over four weeks. He’s also a Seattle Sounders season ticketholder and is very excited about the new Seattle NHL team.
