SRU VICE PRESIDENT NAMED FINALIST FOR CFO OF THE YEAR

     SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Dr. Charles Curry, Slippery Rock University vice president for finance and administration, has been selected as a finalist in the Pittsburgh Business Times’ Chief Financial Officer of the Year awards program in the nonprofit category.

     “Charles Curry has demonstrated his leadership in managing a complex budget within a complex system. Additionally, managing public funds requires a very special trust in that all of your accounts are public records. Being CFO at a university is more than managing the accounts and recording losses and gains. This is a well-deserved honor for Charles and he is in distinguished company,” said SRU President Robert Smith.

     Curry and his staff were cited for the fiscal management that has enabled SRU to add faculty and embark on the largest amount of new construction at one time on campus, all while maintaining excellent financial ratios.

     Other finalists in the nonprofit category are: Diane Buirge, North Hills Community Outreach; Andrew Mangene, Presbyterian Senior Care; Frederick Massey, Family Links; David Samuel, West Penn Allegheny Health System; and George Sandora, Alle-Kiski Medical Center. They will be honored at the CFO of the Year Awards Dinner at Pittsburgh’s Omni William Penn, Nov. 2, at which the winners in six categories will be announced.
