CHARLOTTE, N.C. – October 13, 2020 – ettain group is proud to announce that its CFO, Scott Forester, has been named by Charlotte Business Journal as a finalist for their 2020 CFO of the Year Award, which recognizes the role and contributions made by financial executives at their respective organizations.
Forester joined ettain group as the company Controller in 2015, advancing to VP of Finance & Accounting after two years, and just seventeen months later, to CFO. He played an integral part in the company’s 2019 acquisition of two leading staffing firms. In connection with the transactions, ettain group received a new majority investment from Alvarez & Marsal Capital (“A&M Capital”). These transactions expanded ettain group’s national footprint on the IT staffing and solutions market, growing its employee base by 154% and revenues by 262%, and catapulting ettain group to one of the largest talent solutions companies in the U.S. Forester’s commitment to the success of the integration, to ettain group, and to his team made him the obvious choice to lead the integrated company as CFO.
“Scott’s experience and expertise, along with his outstanding leadership style, make him invaluable to ettain group,” said Trent Beekman, ettain group’s CEO. “He was instrumental in the success of our acquisition and integration efforts. The results of his efforts are a testament to his business acumen and work ethic. He leads by example, with a team approach that motivates his employees to exceed expectations continually. He is unquestionably the right person to lead ettain group as CFO.”
