Pasadena, Texas – October 18, 2018

Houston Business Journal named Stephen Powers, PinnacleART Chief Financial Officer, as a finalist for its 2018 CFO of the Year award, which honors top financial executives across the city. The finalists were selected for their qualitative and quantitative accomplishments, their community involvement and their ability to manage change, adapt to disruptions and help the company navigate a successful course in a dynamic world.

“Stephen’s ability to join a rapidly growing business, gain an intricate understanding of what we do, and almost immediately make an impact is unprecedented” said Kerri Walsh, PinnacleART Director of People and Development. “He has shown a unique ability to act as an exceptional CFO and step in as our interim CEO, with no disruption to the business, but contrarily with stronger growth than we’ve seen all year, under his direction. He is truly a leader, an influencer and a trusted advisor to our team.”

Thirty finalists are in the running to win the title, which will be announced at the CFO of the Year Awards Luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Hilton Americas Hotel. The finalists and winner will also be announced in a special publication in the Nov. 9 issue of the Houston Business Journal.
