Construction Financial Management Association Reorganizes Headquarters’ Structure
for Optimal Delivery of Member Value

September 12, 2013 – Princeton, NJ – The Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) announced a major reorganization of their headquarters’ staff structure.  As of September 3, 2013, Brian Summers took on the new position of Vice President of Content Management and Education, Erica O’Grady became CFMA’s Vice President of Operations, and Rob Rubin became the Vice President of Finance and Administration.

Stuart Binstock, CFMA President & CEO, said, “At the core of this change is the belief that we need to do a better job of managing all of the educational content we develop into a more integrated, holistic approach in delivering member value.  These changes will also align our organization to better support and carry out CFMA’s Mission and Strategic Plan.”

Brian Summers will oversee the efforts of CFMA’s Education, Publications, and Marketing departments which have primary responsibility for course development, CFMA’s website, other online content, and the social media sphere.  Erica O’Grady will oversee the Member Services, Chapter Services, Graphic Design, and Meeting Services departments, as well as assist CFMA’s President & CEO with the work of the Executive Committee.  Rob Rubin will continue in the same capacity with oversight of the IT department, as well.  Patrick A. Cebelak, Chairman of CFMA, said, “I am confident that these changes will produce more efficient, effective delivery of value to our members.”

CFMA’s affiliate organization, The Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals (ICCIFP), formerly headed by O’Grady, is currently operating under a transition plan until a replacement is found.  Until then, ICCIFP will continue to operate with minimal impact until new staff is hired.
