Continuous Improvement Keeps Benjamin Moore at the Leading Edge, Says CFO Talia Griep

Benjamin Moore CFO Talia Griep and her team leverage deep data analytics to help the legacy brand hone its financial and operational decision-making, supporting the 140-year-old company’s leading position in the premium paint category. But Griep’s story isn’t just about technology it’s also about change management, and maintaining and advancing a corporate culture that embraces continuous improvement.

Our company is unique in that our distribution channel has historically been and continues to primarily be independent retailers, who have an entrepreneurial outlook since they own their establishment, notes Griep, who joined the Montvale, N.J.-based premium quality residential and commercial coatings manufacturer in 2013. The company sees this as a selling point, noting that a local establishment is more likely to have staff that can answer customers’ questions about paint.
