Clayton Oliver, Chief Financial Officer of Component Engineers Inc.

Clayton joined CEI in 2000 as the Bookkeeper. Today, as the company’s CFO, Clayton oversees all financial aspects of the business including reporting, planning, record-keeping, data analysis, forecasting, budgeting, and government compliance. When working with clients and suppliers, he believes the best solutions come from open dialogue and a joint team approach.

“Every project has its own financial idiosyncrasies. Our finance team works closely with customer and supplier teams to resolve any concerns and keep the work on track.”

Clayton’s role may begin with spreadsheets but it doesn’t end there. He also helps with many aspects of human resources including employee benefits, commercial insurances and event planning and is responsible for the management, implementation and facilitation of CEI’s information technology.
