The 2012 Nonprofit CFO of the Year is Stan Berman, CFO of Global Impact (pictured). He will be honored along with Transformational Leader honoree Kimberly McKinnish and Rising Star recipient Jason Daisy, both association professionals, at the CFO of the Year Luncheon, Jan. 24 in Washington.
Berman has been on GI’s executive team for three years, during which time he “has shaped critical business strategies and operational policies that have made the organization fiscally stronger, more agile and more effective,” according to his nomination. He has aligned the nonprofit’s budget process with its business strategy by focusing on GI’s four key lines of business, rather than a traditional departmental structure.
He helped lead the development of a new performance management system for Global Impact, that has attracted new staff with the skills to manage the organization’s new growth.
Berman also installed a new fundraising management software solution for the nonprofit and initiated key projects, such as automating the preparation of charity distribution checks. “The organization’s expense ratio is 2.9 percent, well below the 35 percent guideline set by the Better Business Bureau for nonprofit organizations,” the nomination said.
Kimberly McKinnish was named the 2012 Transformational Leader. McKinnish is CFO of the National Beer Wholesalers Association. She played a major role in the transformation of the operations of the association’s nonprofit- not only in the financial department, but also in broader operational areas, such as pioneering a significant major program, developing and implementing a technological breakthrough, or engineering a reorganization or merger. Since joining NBWA in 2009, she has revamped the budget process, found a comparable health insurance contract that saved the association money, designed new member services, and is now leading a task force to enhance non-dues revenue.
The Rising Star honoree is Associated Builders and Contractors CFO Jason Daisey. The award is for a finance officer who is 40 or younger. Since joining ABC in 2009, Daisey has revamped financial reporting using up-to-date technology, and led an effort to install a new AMS system for ABC and its chapters. His efforts also led to an IRS refund of $1.5 million, with ongoing efforts to retrieve more through re-filings.
All three will be honored at the 2012 Nonprofit CFO of the Year luncheon, Jan. 24 at the Mayflower hotel in Washington, hosted by Tate & Tryon, West, Lane & Schlager and Association TRENDS. To reserve a seat or table, go to www.nonprofitcfoaward.com.
