How to Hand Off Responsibility as Business Grows - Andrew Epstein

In Chapter 17 of 19 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, charter school executive Andrew Epstein shares what management skills are helping him transition from overseeing finance for one school to several. He highlights implementing systems that are easily replicable. This allows him to then train others to do the work effectively so the business, in this case a public charter school, may scale. Epstein is currently Senior Director for Finance at Democracy Prep Public Schools in New York City. Previously, he was a finance executive at Universal Music Group's Island Def Jam Records and, previous to that, a schoolteacher in the Teach for America Corps program. He holds a BA from the University of Michigan and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
