Derek Griffin / Speartek

Derek Griffin is the President of Speartek, a technology firm that focuses on B2B Ecommerce website development.  B2B stands for business to business and is a common term for wholesale businesses or product companies that sell through a distribution network.  Derek was one of the founders of Speartek back in 2000, right as the dotcom bubble was about to take a turn for the worse.Through some lean years in the early 2000’s, Speartek survived and has grown to be a recognized wholesale ecommerce expert in a few product industries including the merchandise companies that come to the gift mart in downtown Atlanta.  For twenty years, Derek has been architecting business solutions for these product companies and delivering them in great looking, easy to use websites that help their clients better serve their customers while making their own internal order processing more efficient and profitable.

This is Derek’s second career.  His first was in public accounting with a local CPA firm for 7 years here in Atlanta and then 3 years as the CFO of a $20 million privately held manufacturing firm.  It is that detailed business understanding he learned in the accounting and auditing years that helps him easily grasp how a business operates and then uses that knowledge to guide his team on how to setup just the right solution that adds value to each client he works with.

Speartek offices are in Atlanta and Derek lives in Marietta with his wife Alanna and their two kids Savanna and Dakota.
