Two CCHS executives have been named Finalists in the Female Executive of the Year category in the 10th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business. President Sandra Finn and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Tami Thraum have been recognized and will each ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Sandra Finn joined CCHS in 1999 and moved quickly from Executive Vice President to President. She oversees a total of more than 600 employees in the company’s Fort Lauderdale, Fla., headquarters and in its Anderson, S.C., customer care facility that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. She has focused the company’s attention on delivering a top-notch customer experience across every point of contact within the company; united a diverse employee base behind the company’s customer service-focused mission, and has been repeatedly recognized as Florida’s top five most prominent female executives by The Commonwealth Institute.
“It’s not only an honor to be acknowledged as a finalist for this prestigious award, but to be grouped with my colleague Tami Thraum is truly remarkable,” said Finn. “Cross Country Home Services has a specific focus on delivering the best in industry customer experience and constantly challenges its employees to look for ways to improve it. This focus goes beyond a single project or initiative; it’s part of the CCHS culture and drives the way we do business. Our executive team truly works together to ensure this culture.”
As CFO of CCHS, Tami Thraum oversees all accounting and financial reporting, planning and analysis, treasury management, procurement, and legal among other day-to-day operations. A finance industry veteran, she has played an integral role in CCHS’s remarkable success despite the harsh economic climate for American businesses. Her initiatives have had far-reaching positive implications for financial reporting and analysis, strategic planning, treasury, legal and compliance, procurement and facilities management.
“I am humbled to have earned the American Business Awards’ recognition for Female Executive of the year alongside many outstanding women in leadership, including our president, Sandra Finn,” said Thraum. “This nomination was made possible with the help of the outstanding team I work with and our commitment to making CCHS the best it can be. I am proud to be a part of such an outstanding organization.”
