Craig R. Everett Craig R. Everett

Assistant Professor of Finance | Pepperdine University


Speaking on small business trends, capital markets, financial literacy, and other financial topics.



Craig R. Everett was born and raised in Maine, spending his childhood summers digging randomly along the shores of Bar Harbor for buried pirate treasure. Fortunately, he was able to avoid ruining his oversized sense of adventure by remaining blissfully unaware that pirates seldom, if ever, ventured that far north. He received his B.A. in Quantitative Economics from Tufts University, a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from George Mason University, and a PhD in Finance from Purdue University.

Dr. Everett’s career in industry has included four years at Accenture, eight years at Northrop Grumman, and several additional years involved with various start-up ventures.

Dr. Everett is currently a full-time finance faculty member at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, where he teaches corporate and entrepreneurial finance.

Dr. Everett is married with five amazing children ranging from eighteen to six years of age. Believing that lack of financial education was a leading cause of the financial crisis of 2008, Dr. Everett is a tireless advocate for youth financial literacy. He volunteers in public school classrooms teaching financial principles. He has previously served as a member of the board of directors for Junior Achievement of Greater Lafayette. He currently serves as a classroom volunteer for Junior Achievement of Southern California.
