Marketwired

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - Last night the Eight Annual Bay Area CFO of the Year Awards was held at the Westin St. Francis to recognize the finalists and announce the 2013 winners in six award categories. Over 500 business leaders and executives were on hand to celebrate this year's CFO finalists and winners and honor the Lifetime Achievement Award winner Byron Pollitt, Chief Financial Officer of Visa Inc. In addition, 16 CFO of the Year honorees from previous years joined in celebrating their fellow CFOs.

This year's event raised over $455,000 for Larkin Street Youth Services and has raised over $3.2 million in total over the past eight years to support Larkin Street's programs. Each year, Larkin Street helps over 4,000 homeless and at-risk youth in San Francisco move off the streets through comprehensive housing, education, employment and support programs. The funds raised help Larkin Street's expanding mission to deepen education and employment-readiness for youth based on the increasing need for post-secondary education and job readiness skills.

"Being awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award is a great honor. It was quite something to be in a room full of this year's outstanding CFO of the Year honorees and for all of us to be recognized for the service we render to our companies, our shareholders, our communities," said Pollitt. "This event is especially meaningful because it benefits Larkin Street, which helps the younger members of our community catch a break during a time of their lives when it can matter the most."
