With Tina’s direction, the company focused on reallocating budget, cutting back on costs without compromising quality, investing in employees’ health and happiness, and giving back to the San Diego community.
“It was just as important during the last five years as it was when we first started this business to make sure that all of our profits went right back into this company,” said Tina Howe. “During these hard times it was important to my husband, Bill Howe, and I that we tighten our belts within some areas of the company, without compromising quality of work and products for our customers and quality of life for our employees.”
The criteria for the award nomination was based on several key points including the CFO’s commitment to create and maintain a positive work environment and employee satisfaction, how the CFO has contributed to the company’s financial success, the CFO’s innovated contribution to the company, and the community involvement and philanthropic contributions of the CFO.
