Debi joined Corbin Design in October of 2018 as our business manager. Debi assists with the management of the office operations and staff and leads efforts in process improvement. She also keeps track of the numbers at Corbin Design—for both our firm and our clients—while making sure that the people involved never feel like numbers themselves. She also administers the company benefit programs and other HR related responsibilities.
Before working for Corbin Design, Debi was the general manager at Higher Grounds Trading Co. Prior to that, Debi was a business owner. In 2006 she founded and grew a delivery service that, at the time of sale, generated annual revenues of $4.2 million dollars. Based in Traverse City, MI, her company provided high quality service that led to the opening of a second facility in Grand Rapids, MI in 2011. The company employed up to 25 people and contracted with 32 independent contract drivers. She led the organization through expansion challenges while attaining 25%-35% growth each year.
When she’s not working to keep Corbin Design in the black, Debi enjoys fishing, gardening and enjoying the beautiful landscape of Northern Michigan.
