Virginia CPA receives "CFO of the Year" award

The Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA) partnered with Virginia Business magazine for the fourth year of the “CFO of the Year” award program, which recognizes outstanding achievement in financial stewardship for Virginia-based public and private companies and nonprofits. 

This prestigious program honors chief financial officers (CFO), or those holding equivalent positions, whose ingenuity and dedication have led to success for their companies, their staffs, and their professional careers.
 
VSCPA member Andrea Kilmer, CPA, CFO of The ESG Companies of Virginia Beach, captured the top spot in the small private company category. A 25-year veteran of the company, Kilmer says “every day is different” at an organization that has owned and managed automobile dealerships, hotels, restaurants, theme parks, marinas and retail shops, just to name a few. She was nominated by her peers for her hard work, civic-mindedness and selflessness, according to the nomination form.
 
Kilmer credits her ability to handle tough issues in part to being a CPA. “Having a basic fundamental understanding of problem-solving with numbers, which is very fundamental to accounting, is critical,” she says.
 
Kilmer, along with dozens of finalists and top winners, were announced at a special awards gala in July  at the historic Jefferson Hotel in Richmond in the following categories: public company, small private company, large private company, small nonprofit and large nonprofit. The winners were profiled in a special cover story in the August 2009 issue of Virginia Business magazine.
 
The VSCPA also congratulates its CPA members who were selected as award finalists:
 
** Large Nonprofit Organizations **
Peter Gallagher, CPA, of Bon Secours
Rodney Oliver, CPA, of the Virginia Port Authority
 
** Small Private Company **
Jennifer Duff, CPA, of MPAY Inc.
Sandra McKinney, CPA, of AERO Integrated Solutions
 
** Large Private Company **
Jon Peterson, CPA, of OMNIPLEX World Services Corp.
