Preferred Medical announced today the addition of Cindy Alvano as Vice President of Finance & Accounting.
“Cindy brings extensive finance and accounting experience to Preferred that will be key to our growth plans for 2019 and beyond,” said Amy Wrightsel, chief operating officer for Preferred. “Her expertise and reputation is a perfect fit for our superstar executive management team.”
Alvano will oversee the financial strategy and direction of the company, managing the finance team that oversees the business operation. Her vast expertise in prioritizing financial controls, budgeting, financial reporting and accounts receivable while maximizing efficiency and profitability will be a huge asset. And since she’s worked at companies both large and not-so-large, she’s a perfect fit for the ongoing growth trajectory of Preferred.
“Applying my skills to a variety of businesses has given me a broad understanding as to financial best practices,” Alvano said. “I look forward to leveraging my diverse background to fine-tune Preferred’s business model to support our plans for the present and future.”
While new to a business specifically focused on workers’ compensation, Alvano is not new to the challenges that work comp can bring to a business which will give her unique insights into providing solutions to Preferred’s clients. Her past employers include Johnson Controls, Humana and Brown Jordan Company in Kentucky, FLSmidth in Nebraska, Tyson Foods in South Dakota, Bekins Distribution and an accounting firm in Iowa, and an automotive supply company in Michigan.
Alvano earned her Bachelor of Science in accounting degree from Briar Cliff University, her MBA from Wayne State College, and has been a Certified Public Accountant since 2000.
