Florida Citrus Sports Chief Financial Officer Dennis Braziel was named the Orlando Business Journal’s nonprofit CFO of the Year. The award was announced in Friday’s issue of the OBJ and presented during a luncheon at the Sheraton Orlando Downtown.
Braziel joined the FCSports staff in 2007 after serving as CFO for Hannover Life Reassurance in New York. Since arriving, he has guided the organization through superior fiscal accountability and corporate governance. In this role, he also serves as director of human resources and helped construct FCSports’ first values statement.
From the Orlando Business Journal:
“Braziel — Orlando Business Journal’s top nonprofit CFO of the Year — helped increase Florida Citrus Sports’ revenue by 3.2 percent, from $21.6 million in 2009 to $22.3 million last year, and net income by 6,618 percent, from $11,000 in 2009 to $739,000 in 2010. The nonprofit predicts an even greater revenue of $23 million and net income of $745,000 for 2011.”
Although he has only been on staff for four years, Braziel has been a member of Florida Citrus Sports since 1982. He was an active volunteer for the FWAA All-America Team Celebration and served on several committees, including Media Relations… In 2002, he was honored with the Howard Palmer Award, the most prestigious honor that a FCSports member can receive.
Florida Citrus Sports is proud to congratulate Dennis Braziel on this well-deserved honor.
