I am proud to announce that ISRI’s Chief Financial Officer Margie Erinle has been named 2018 Association CFO of the Year and will be recognized at the Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards sponsored by Association Trends.
The Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards
were co-founded in 2006 by Tate & Tryon and West, Lane & Schlager, to recognize and honor the contributions of nonprofit financial executives who demonstrate a vision for operational excellence, innovation in finance and management, exceptional leadership and commitment to improving accountability. The nonprofit CFO role has evolved from simply a number cruncher to a big-picture thinker involved in nearly every facet of the organization. Today, CFOs are increasingly involved in setting operational strategy and serving as a strategic leader and advisor to the CEO and board. Despite this expanding role, the contributions of the CFO are often overlooked and rarely recognized.
In less than 2 years in the role of CFO at ISRI, Margie has brought a new level of professionalism, confidence, and overall excellence to ISRI’s financial and accounting operations. Before ISRI, Margie worked at Howard University managing a $657MM budget and prior to that served as Controller to a number of for and nonprofit organizations through Accounts Plus. Overall, she has almost 40 years of accounting/auditing/finance experience. Margie holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Bowie State University and an MBA in Finance from Morgan State University. Margie has used her background in accounting to ‘pay it forward’ and established an orphanage in her home country of Nigeria where she provides a place for displaced children affording them food, education and clothing.
The Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards luncheon will be held on October 11 in Washington, DC. Congratulations, Margie
