This is the Dallas Business Journal’s 13th annual CFO of the Year Awards which honors distinguished North Texas CFOs who demonstrate financial acumen and measurable impact on their organizations. This year’s honorees were selected from a variety of industries including legal, hospitality, finance, health care, automotive, technology, food and beverage, commercial real estate, manufacturing, nonprofit, retail and education. The event is sponsored by CIBC, RSM and Vaco.

With a Careington career spanning three decades Melissa continues to exemplify what it takes to be a successful and compassionate leader, and Careington is proud to have her as CFO.
