Portland Business Journal recognized our very own Jason Reese—CFO and Riverside Co-Founder—as a finalist for 2017 CFO of the Year, Oregon and Southwest Washington.

All finalists will take the stage on May 18th at a luncheon in the Portland Hilton's Grand Ballrooms to receive an award, where the winners in five categories will be announced. Honorees will also be profiled in an upcoming special CFO edition of the journal.

Living in the shadows of the limelight, Reese is instrumental in supporting the financial infrastructure of Riverside, aiding last year's performance by ensuring the proper tools, metrics, staffing, and policies were in place to support Riverside's rapid growth from the ground up into a multi-million dollar company, while mitigating risks and amplifying opportunities to remain profitable.
