JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The executive team at one of the nation's fastest-growing financial services companies continues to collect honors.
The Jacksonville Business Journal named Foundation Financial Group Chief Financial Officer Tanya L. Mauro as one of its 11 "Ultimate CFO Award" winners for 2011. The prestigious award recognized Mauro, in part, for overseeing and managing the costs of opening seven new offices nationwide in the past nine months, while implementing new cost-saving measures for the growing company.
"I have worked in various corporations, including two Fortune 500 companies, and I have never worked with a CFO who brings more value to a company than Tanya brings to Foundation Financial Group," said CEO Mark W. Boyer. "Tanya always thinks big picture and is by no means the stereotypical 'bean counter' CFO. Whether she is re-negotiating a vendor contract or devising a program to lower expenditures on paper products, Tanya is always aware of our bottom line. Tanya has the perfect skill set to lead our company all the way to the Fortune 100."
Mauro negotiated the leases for seven new Foundation Financial Group offices. In August, the company opened five retail branch centers in Dayton, Ohio; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Mo.; Toledo, Ohio; and St. Paul, Minn. In June, Foundation Financial Group opened its seventh U.S. regional center in Dallas, Texas, and, in January, the company opened its sixth regional center in Rochester, N.Y.
Mauro's honor marks the second for the Foundation Financial Group executive team over the past year. In fall 2010, the Jacksonville Business Journal named Foundation Financial Group's Chief Human Resources Officer, James S. Brodsky, one of Northeast Florida's "Ultimate HR Executives."
The business journal honor tops a long list of accolades presented Foundation Financial Group this year. The Jacksonville Business Journal recently named Foundation Financial Group one of the Top 10 mortgage lenders in Northeast Florida. In August, Florida Trend magazine named Foundation Financial Group one of the "Best Companies to Work For" in 2011. In April, the Atlanta Business Chronicle honored Foundation Financial Group as the 15th fastest-growing company in its annual Pacesetter Awards.
