According to the BBJ, the award “recognizes CFOS who make a difference in their companies and organizations.” There are several categories – Public Company, Small Private, Medium Private, Large Private and Nonprofit. The BBJ also presents a Lifetime Achievement Award.
John has been our CFO for nine years and has two roles for us – in addition to being our CFO, he’s our resident budgeting expert. As a blog reader, you know John’s on the front lines of what’s new in budgeting and what issues organizations face while managing the budgeting, planning and forecasting process. He shares his expertise – honed over more than 25 years in finance, accounting and administration – with Centage clients and our product development teams.
So while the BBJ is recognizing John for his internal leadership here at Centage, we recognize the invaluable contribution he makes far beyond our finance and administration.
The winners of all the categories will be announced at a luncheon on July 31, 2013. The BBJ has put together a great event – the keynote speaker is Kenneth Feinberg, who is administering the One Fund Boston.
The luncheon will also honor Nancy Hawthorne, Chair and CEO of Clerestory, with the F. Gorham Brigham Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award.
John is truly deserving of this honor and we appreciate this reminder of all he does for Centage. Keep your fingers crossed for John. And check back here in early August for the announcement of the winner!
