SylvanSport is expanding its team, most recently with the hire of Finance Director Lisa Drake. Drake previously worked as Finance Director in the manufacturing and hospitality industries.

Drake was drawn to SylvanSport for its innovative nature and products, but also for its location in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Brevard, NC. An avid cyclist, kayaker and hiker, Drake could not resist the access to nearby Pisgah National Forest, and the beauty of Western North Carolina. “I catch myself saying ‘I live here’ on my commute, as I wind through the valley with the sun rising over the mountains,” said Drake. “It is a beautiful place to live and work.”

“We are excited to welcome Lisa to our team,” said SylvanSport CEO Tom Dempsey. “Her unique experience in both large corporation and small business finance will bring a high level of professionalism to our team as we continue to grow in 2021.”
