Eddie Corbitt has been in the construction industry for 30 years and served a decade with Prism Electric as Chief Financial Officer. He started his career as a public accountant for a big eight accounting firm, then ventured into real estate and construction financing as a Controller. Eddie transitioned from CFO to Prism’s Senior Financial Advisor and mentored John Davis as his successor during the past year. He will be continuing to focus on helping steer Prism to a sound and profitable future as we continue to grow.
Eddie said the core values that Prism adopted last year had been his life core values as well. “There is no substitute for character. I believe in total accountability, personally and professionally. I always strive for top-level, quality performance in everything I do. Winning with humility is always my goal in life and at work. I have always tried to do the right thing, regardless of any personal consequences. My life priorities are God, Family, Country, and Work in that order.”
