SAN DIEGO, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brian Scott, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer for AMN Healthcare, has been named 2016 CFO of the Year by the San Diego Business Journal.
The 10th Annual CFO of the Year Award was presented to CFOs and financial managers from across San Diego for their fiscal leadership and diligent oversight of their organizations and their bottom lines. Mr. Scott's award was in the large public company category.
"I'm really honored to receive this award from the San Diego Business Journal," he said. "At AMN Healthcare, we've had a tremendously successful year in serving our clients and shareholders. This award reflects on the hard work of our entire team -- all divisions, departments and brands -- that joined together to grow and elevate our company in the past year."
Mr. Scott spearheaded a record-setting financial year for AMN Healthcare. He was instrumental in leading the acquisitions of six companies for a total of over $250 million, adding more than $200 million of revenue. These acquisitions bolstered the tremendous growth the company was already achieving, with 2015 organic growth of over 25%. This resulted in overall reported revenue growth of more than 40%, allowing the company to realize record revenue and earnings and the highest market capitalization in its 30-year history.
At AMN Healthcare, Mr. Scott manages a team that includes more than 400 people across staffing support operations, accounting and finance, process improvement, and internal audit. He promotes positive morale and high engagement among his teams and across the company.
"Brian is a leader in the true sense of the word," said Susan Salka, President and CEO of AMN Healthcare. "He has been an inspiration to all of us, particularly over the last year when he guided the complex acquisitions of six companies that dramatically expanded AMN Healthcare. He's certainly the CFO of the Year, but he's also so much more than that for the Team Members of AMN."
