WAKEFIELD, RI--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - ChartWise Medical Systems, Inc. (www.chartwisemed.com), a groundbreaking Computer-Assisted Clinical Documentation Improvement (CACDI) software company, is pleased to announce that Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Mary Cooper was selected as the 2014 CFO of the Year at a Small Private Company by the Providence Business.
Cooper, along with nine other honorees in related categories, will be celebrated at the 4th Annual Chief Financial Officer Awards Dinner on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at Bryant University's Bello Center. She is also being featured in a CFO Special Supplement issue of Providence Business News.
Cooper was selected by a panel of Providence Business News executives and sponsors. She was praised for her in-depth involvement at ChartWise, which ranges from CFO, to HR manger, to chief operating officer. It was noted that Mary has gained a strong reputation for her efficiency, business acumen, and broad knowledge of finance and technology.
"Mary has accumulated a lot of experience in operations and brings this to bear in a pragmatic and practical approach to financial analysis (and vice versa)," said Dr. Jon Elion, founder and CEO of ChartWise. "Her in-depth knowledge of every aspect of the cost of goods and sales, combined with her knowledge of our operations and engineering capabilities, puts her in a unique position to negotiate contracts and the associated terms and conditions. While an outstanding CFO, she is at the same time so much more."
Cooper has served in the role of CFO for ChartWise for five years but wears many hats for the company. She has set up a comprehensive Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, which has proved to be a great benefit to ChartWise's success. She also performs a vital role in marketing, investor relations, developing contracts and leading the ChartWise team at various significant industry trade shows and conferences. Cooper is also an active member of the community with a variety of community service initiatives and professional associations, including work with Westerly High School, Babcock Middle School and the New England Dressage Association.
The Providence Business News CFO Awards began in 2011 in response to the business community's desire to recognize CFOs, who, while vital to an organization's success, are often under acknowledged for their accomplishments.
