Austin Business Journal Names Kifer as one of six Best CFOs; Winner in Small Private Employer Category

Tiff’s Treats, the much loved warm cookie delivery company, is proud today to announce Kullen Kifer was recognized as Austin’s best CFO in the small private employer category. Kifer is a critical part of the executive team, including founders Leon Chen and Tiffany Taylor-Chen, who are leading Tiff’s Treats through tremendous growth. In its 16 years in business, the company has grown to 18 locations in four Texas cities including Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.

Kifer states a goal of his is to “turn a small local company into a national recognized brand,” and Tiff’s Treats is well on its way. Kifer worked for Tiff’s Treats as a consultant for 10 years before joining the company officially as CFO in 2012. He will be growing his team to support the company’s growth and aggressive expansion plans.

This is the eighth year for the Austin Business Journal’s Best CFO awards which, as the publication says, “recognize the fearless financial strategists who, in this fast-paced digital era, are far more than number crunchers. They provide key guidance to CEOs and board directors of businesses to keep them on track and thriving.”

“It is only through leadership and guidance like that from Kullen that we have been able to achieve so much success so quickly,” said Leon Chen. “We are thrilled he has gotten this well deserved recognition and look forward to us all working together to continue to grow and expand to ensure Tiff’s Treats warm, fresh baked cookies are available to more happy customers in more places.”

A sweet – pun intended! – additional piece of Kullen’s story with Tiff’s Treats is that the cookies helped him meet his wife! He met a woman he liked one evening and the next morning, she happened to order cookies, and Kullen did the delivery. When they saw each other again, at her door, she gave him a nice tip and told him he now had her phone number and to call! More on this story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nea4jlubNJw
