HED wishes farewell to retiring CFO Kevin Peterson, and celebrates the appointment of a new CFO Angela Janssen
It is with gratitude and confidence that HED announces the retirement of our CFO, Kevin Peterson, CPA, and the appointment of Angela Janssen, CPA, our prior Financial Controller, to fill his role as the new CFO.
Kevin’s retirement became official at the end of March, and after a vote of the annual Shareholder meeting followed by the Board of Directors Spring meeting, Angela has officially assumed the CFO role. Kevin has graciously agreed to provide ongoing consultative support to the firm, including oversight of the completion and implementation of an improved enterprise resource planning platform, an effort which Kevin began during his tenure as CFO.
Kevin joined the firm in 2016, and since then his steadfast leadership and financial acumen have been critical to our achievements as a firm. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Kevin for all his contributions to HED and wish him a wonderful retirement.
"We are particularly grateful to Kevin for seven eventful years of service at HED, providing us with critical financial leadership as we worked through several mergers and a worldwide pandemic. Kevin has been a key contributor to the success of our firm and a reliable teammate and collaborator. We hope that retirement will bring him well-deserved rest and relaxation," says Tania Van Herle, CEO.
Angela Janssen, who has been with HED for more than six years as the Financial Controller, has a record of outstanding performance in her role. She is a graduate of the Michigan State University Eli Broad College of Business with a Master of Science in Professional Accounting as well as Bachelor of Arts in Accounting, and an accomplished history with companies such as Plante Moran and Carhartt. We are pleased to elevate a current member of our team to a role of Corporate Governance and have every confidence in Angela's ability to continue our legacy of growth and innovation, creating positive impact for our clients.
