Susie Riggs

Controller

As Gallatin’s Controller, Susie Riggs does more than crunch numbers.  No matter which hat she’s wearing, she remains prepared with one consistent vision – to empower thought-leaders with a strategic financial plan that embraces technological innovations to improve effectiveness, increases efficiency and enhances insightful decision-making.

Susie oversees corporate finance, treasury, accounting, information technology, human resources, tax, audit and risk management and plays a significant role in our strategic leadership.

With over 20 years of experience in multiple industries, from investment and advisory firms, private equity, venture capital, family office and natural resources, Susie has developed a hybrid of talents that she brings to Gallatin today – business and financial acumen, technology expertise, due diligence, project management and interpersonal skills.

Prior to Gallatin, Susie served as Fund Administrator with TWV Capital, where she incorporated new compliance best practices and trained investors to use a sophisticated portfolio management software program that she built and implemented.  In each of her previous roles, she used her executive leadership skills to manage the financial operations, human resources and staffs for multi-entity companies with offices across various states and countries.

Susie is from Dallas, Texas but was born and raised in Midland, where she studied accounting at Midland College.  She started an in-home dog training company in 2018 called PackLeader, which now operates here in Portland.  

Susie relocated to Portland in April 2019 and joined Gallatin. You can find her outside riding her bike or hiking with her pack of dogs, Dulce, Diego and Hope.  Her grown son lives in Dallas but visits often.
