CFO of the Year Award: Finalist
On Thursday, March 15, 2012 we attended the San Diego Business Journal’s 6th Annual Chief Financial Officer of the Year Award Ceremony at the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa. CFOs are the key professionals who exemplify hard work, dedication, ethics and the ability to inspire others to work together to find solutions to business challenges. Tina Howe was named a finalist for this award.
As the Vice President and the CFO of the Bill Howe Family of Companies, Tina has seen some challenges during times of an unstable economy. She took a hard look at every area of the company that has an effect on the bottom line and established a budget for each division and tasked each division lead with creating ways to cut costs without compromising quality of work for customers and quality of life for employees. Not only was the company able to find ways to be more cost effective with every day business, Tina also reallocated funds to areas of the business that would benefit the company in the long term.
