Ted Townsend

Director, Operations Finance and Technology Business Management Office Asurion Corporation

As a senior finance professional with more than 15 years of experience, I have built my reputation on my understanding and appreciation of “the business of doing business,” and consistency in developing and maintaining trusted, productive relationships.


I have taken advantage of every opportunity to work with technology and operations business units, and have found that my interest in, and aptitude for, that side of the business equation has given me a unique ability to bridge gaps and turn issues into opportunities.


I am recognized as one who communicates logically and factually, who never presents a problem without also presenting potential solutions, and who has the business sense and financial insight to build consensus across departmental lines. A trusted business advisor and enabler, I enjoy the challenge of taking on seemingly impossible or previously unsuccessful initiatives, and managing solutions to advance the business forward.

and hit expectations and  Increase the bottom line.
