Mintz & Hoke CFO Ron Perine, 2011 CFO of the Year finalist

Mintz & Hoke's Ron Perine Recognized as Top CFO of the Year Finalist

Avon, Conn., November 14, 2011 - Inside Mintz & Hoke, we’ve always known that Ron Perine excels at wearing his many hats. He’s not simply our CFO combining the wisdom and professionalism needed to keep the agency financially stable in an ever-changing business climate. He also has steered the creation of our entire technology infrastructure and today directs our development team. He manages a host of outside consultants and services, manages our space and works with Hill on the building at large. (As we witnessed recently, he literally helps keep the lights on and the heat running). All that plus engineering the agency’s benefits to remain as affordable as possible, despite exponentially escalating costs. In sum, Ron has been absolutely central to our agency and a keystone of our success.

But now, the outside world has caught on to what we witness every day. Recognized as a leading CFO, Ron was just named a 2011 CFO of the Year finalist by the Hartford Business Journal. He was one of a small number of CFOs honored across non-profits, public companies and private. As it turns out, Ron’s broad ability is essential to being a successful CFO. In its description of today’s business finance leaders, the Hartford Business Journal could be quoting from Ron’s job description, “Today’s CFOs are actively engaged in virtually every aspect of the modern business. They provide the analysis that drives strategic decisions. They often have their hands deep into the IT infrastructure. Often, they play a role in human resource functions, labor relations and regulatory compliance.” 

Sound familiar?

What this doesn’t relate to in describing Ron is the unflinching dedication and commitment he brings to everything he does for our agency. Even when there’s no one to see, no one to even know that he’s been selfless and determined in looking after our interests, he’s relentlessly there for Mintz & Hoke.  

The judges included Ron on the Hartford Business Journal list, but he got there thanks to a former Mintz & Hoke employee who made a behind-the-scenes nomination. This shows that top CFO talent doesn’t stay a secret for long.
