A successful, results-driven executive finance professional who has had success with both non-profit and for-profit organizations by focusing primarily on two main areas. First is to make sure the finance system and procedures are rock solid to allow for period closes within 2 days, and second to take the finance information and merge it with other organizational data to create meaningful metrics that the Executive team can use to chart progress on the organization’s strategy and vision road maps.
My experience and success over the course of 18 years was within 4 different corporate environments due to sale, acquisition, merger and separation to a standalone company. My tenure at Aquinas, and even more recently at Clarkson, required quick understanding and operational adaptation, gaining management’s trust and promptly adding value. At RIT Research, I worked with a number of startup ventures in their initial stages to get them off the ground and established.
