BOSTON, June 23, 2016 – Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, today announced that Jim Kelliher, Chief Financial Officer at Actifio, has been named as a finalist for the Boston Business Journal’s eighth annual CFO of the Year Award. The CFO of the Year Awards recognize CFOs who make a difference in their companies and organizations.
Jim Kelliher joined Actifio as CFO in January 2015, bringing with him a wealth of experience and accomplishments, including his time as CFO at LogMeIn Inc. where he helped lead the company from a $10 million, 50 person startup to one of the leading publicly traded technology companies in Boston.
Since joining Actifio, Jim has re-cast a plan that has taken Actifio forward, building relationships with team leaders across the company, getting into the details of the business at every level, and driving understanding and consensus around a clear financial plan.
“Jim has been integral to Actifio’s shift from venture-backed start up, to a company on track to cross the threshold of cash positive operations during the current fiscal year,” said Ash Ashutosh, CEO and Founder of Actifio. “This nomination is well-deserved recognition of the fantastic work and leadership he’s demonstrated since he joined the company, and reinforces the great sense of pride we all feel for having him on our team.”
Boston Business Journal’s CFO of the Year Awards evaluates chief financial officers and their teams who deliver the most outstanding performance for the work at their companies over the past year. A panel of judges, drawn from the region’s top financial leaders and past winners, will determine the winners based on demonstrated financial growth during the year, success in overcoming significant business challenges or barriers, and examples of team leadership and superior management. Other factors may include contributions to the community, demonstrated commitment to the company’s financial best practices and accounting standards, or success as a strategic visionary for the enterprise.
The Boston Business Journal will award this year’s CFOs of the Year during the eighth annual Awards luncheon in the afternoon of July 14 at The Seaport Hotel in Boston.
