The Hartford Business Journal named Goodwin College’s Vice President of Finance, Eddie Meyer, Chief Financial Officer of the Year as part of its 2019 awards for outstanding area executives.
The publication recognized six area executives as the recipients of its 2019 C-Suite Awards. The awards spotlight leaders from the for-profit and nonprofit sectors who have made significant contributions to their companies.
“Eddie Meyer is an incredibly bright and talented CFO. He possess an incredible skillset that has greatly helped Goodwin College continue its growth and expansion,” said Dan Noonan, Goodwin’s Vice President of Enrollment, Marketing and Communications. “The only things greater than his professional expertise are his caring ability and humility. He’s a gem who makes us better every day and with everything he does! He is very deserving of this recognition.”
A panel of Hartford Business Journal editors selected the winning nominees, who will be honored at an awards luncheon on June 5. Goodwin President Mark Scheinberg nominated Meyer for the award.
“Under Eddie’s leadership, Goodwin College has continued to expand its mission of serving our students and community,” said Todd Andrews, Goodwin’s Senior Vice President of Economic and Strategic Development. “With mission success comes financial success and, ultimately, long-term organizational sustainability. Eddie has built a strong financial foundation for Goodwin on which we will continue to grow.”
“At the heart of Goodwin College are our students,” said Danielle Wilken, Goodwin’s Provost and Dean of Faculty. “Eddie continually ensures that our students have all of the resources and supports they need through his financial acumen.”
