Welcome, Denise Bock

Please join me in welcoming BrightStar’s new Chief Financial Officer, Denise Bock! Denise started with us this week and is excited to serve in her new leadership role at BrightStar.
Denise started her career as an auditor for Ernst & Young LLP in Denver, CO and after that worked in the proprietary education industry for 14+ years, while living in Laramie, WY. She primarily served in the Controller, CFO, & VP of Finance roles while working for WyoTech and Corinthian Colleges, overseeing combined revenue budgets up to $400 million with campuses coast-to-coast.
While with WyoTech, Denise assisted with two ownership changes and helped the WyoTech organization grow from one to six campuses through branching and acquisitions. In addition to overseeing the financial operations of numerous campuses for Corinthian Colleges, Denise assisted with the integration of a large Canadian school acquisition, and served as Interim VP of Internal Audit to lead the implementation of Sarbanes Oxley across the entire company.
Denise has a husband, Mitch and a 13 year-old daughter, Ashley. Their favorite activities are watching Ashley play soccer and run cross-country races. They also enjoy various outdoor activities together, such as biking, skiing and camping.
“I look forward to working with all of you to help BrightStar continue its growth now and into the future,” said Denise.
We are very happy to have Denise joining us.
