The Village’s Chief Financial Officer recognized as CFO of the Year 2012
HARTFORD, CT, November 13, 2012 – The Village is proud to announce that Ed Hackett, Chief Financial Officer for the agency, has been selected as CFO of the Year by the Hartford Business Journal. Hackett was selected along with three other top CFOs from nonprofit, private, and public companies. Today’s CFO is actively engaged in virtually every aspect of an organization. Along with his financial responsibilities, Hackett also is directly responsible for other business functions of the agency that include property management and information technology.
Beth Bombara, Senior Vice President and Controller at The Hartford, and a Village Board Member, eloquently said, “Under Hackett’s leadership, the Village has grown to three locations, 400 employees and $24 million in revenue. In his four-plus years at the Village, Ed has implemented procedures and measurements which have enhanced the productivity of outpatient services. By providing greater transparency and insight behind the costs and profitability of the Village’s programs, he has enabled management to make better decisions regarding the services that are provided.”
Hackett joined the Village in the midst of our country’s worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Faced with difficult decisions and challenges, he provided sound fiscal judgment to move the mission of the Village forward. Hackett, a humble and approachable man said, “My job is to be the conscience of the organization with regard to its use of resources, and work with our team to ensure that what we do is sustainable for the clients and the communities we serve.”
