Eastside Catholic Chief Financial Officer Kris Galvin is one of five nominees in the running for The Puget Sound Business Journal’s CFO of the Year award for non-profit organizations.
“I am proud of how I contribute to the school’s success, but I also believe that its success is a major factor in my becoming a nominee,” said Galvin, noting the past few years the school has opened a new campus in Sammamish, added a middle school and is attracting increased interest from families in the greater Eastside as being a top tier school.
As Eastside’s CFO, Galvin is responsible for the school’s finances, budgeting and accounting, technology, facilities and general administration.
Galvin, who is in his third year at Eastside, is in the same category with Matt Hayes of The Museum of Flight, Tim McLaughlin of SightLife, Amy Michael of FareStart and Diane Pietrowski of the Plymouth Housing Group.
“Kris Galvin’s selection as a Puget Sound Business Journal CFO of the Year finalist is a tremendous honor for our entire school,” said Sister Mary E. Tracy, president and head of Eastside Catholic. “Kris, in his role as CFO, is integral as a member of our executive team, in setting EC policy and in carrying out operations at all levels.”
Public Company Winners were already announced, with Troy Alstead of Starbucks and Brent Beardall of Washington Federal taking home top honors.
Awards will also be given in the categories of Large Private Companies and Small Private Companies.
The CFO awards ceremony takes place Wednesday, March 7 at Benaroya Hall in Seattle.
