Brinks Home CFO Fred Graffam Selected as a 2022 CFO of the Year

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brinks Home is excited to announce Fred Graffam, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, was selected as a 2022 Dallas Business Journal (DBJ) CFO of the Year Honoree. Graffam’s strategic financial leadership, ability to navigate large-scale business deals, and success in helping Brinks Home attain its most profitable year since 2012 led to his selection as a CFO of the Year. 

“As CFO, Fred Graffam plays a vital role in driving the strategic vision of Brinks Home and negotiating complex business transactions to ensure we remain a leader in the home security industry,” said William Niles, Chief Executive Officer, Brinks Home. “I have had the pleasure of working alongside Fred for the last five years and I cannot think of anyone more deserving of the CFO of the Year title.”

Graffam’s focus on the latest developments impacting home security led the company to invest $25 million in areas such as IT, infrastructure, and technology to modernize Brinks Home’s processes and pave the way for profitable growth. Graffam’s leadership helped Brinks Home emerge from the pandemic and retain more customers in the last year than in the previous five years.

In 2021, Brinks Home and AT&T announced a partnership to allow 200,000 former Digital Life customers impacted by the 3G sunset to remain protected with Brinks Home’s state-of-the-art Smart Home product suite. Graffam put customer protection first when negotiating this profitable deal, and his involvement in various business deals has helped add over $6 million in monthly recurring revenue to the company over the last two years.

Graffam joined Brinks Home in October 2017 with over 25 years of financial management, general management, and accounting experience. He is a CPA with a Bachelor’s Degree from Alfred Lerner College of Business at the University of Delaware.

Graffam will be honored at the CFO of the Year awards ceremony on November 10 and be featured in a special publication in DBJ’s November 18 issue.
