Treasurer & Chief Financial Officer
Don is responsible for overseeing Cincom’s worldwide finance operations. These include treasury management, accounting, tax, budgeting and financial forecasting. He says, “One of the favorite things about my job is that, in working with our various teams, I get to see a little bit of everything that’s going on—what the product team is developing, what sort of resources the engineering team is investing in and what technologies our marketing and sales groups are utilizing to engage the market. It gives me a lot of confidence about our future when I see how the talent across our organization goes about their business.”
Don enjoys the outdoors with his wife on their recreational farm in Indiana and their timberland in Maine. Don has a passion for fly fishing for trout and a desire to improve his woodworking skills.
