ALEXANDRIA, VA - September 26, 2007 - Global Impact today announced that Stanley M. Berman has been named the organization's new chief financial officer, effective October 9, 2007. Berman succeeds Donald Kandel and will serve as a key member of the Global Impact executive team.
A certified public accountant with more than 35 years of financial leadership, Berman spent nearly three decades working at the Washington, DC, headquarters of B'Nai B'rith International, most recently as chief financial officer. In that capacity, he played a key role in the organization's transformation into a more program-oriented charity, directly supervising accounting operations and overseeing all compliance issues, as well as the annual budget. From 1980 to 2002, Berman served as the organization's director of fiscal operations. Prior to his work with B'Nai B'rith, Berman was employed as an auditor and consultant for Arthur Andersen & Co. in Washington, DC.
Berman currently serves on the board of directors of the Greater Washington Society of CPAs and is a member of both the American Institute of CPAs and the Not-For-Profit Accountability Task Force. He received a BS degree in Accounting from the Pennsylvania State University, and earned his MBA from the Wharton Graduate School at the University of Pennsylvania.
"We are thrilled to have Stanley Berman join the Global Impact senior team," said Global Impact President and CEO Renée S. Acosta. "His impressive professional background, his history of hands-on leadership and his strong ties to the community all nicely complement Global Impact's mission of assuring help for those most in need. We look forward to much continued growth under his able financial guidance."
