Epicor Executive Vice President and CFO Accepted the Award Presented by the Austin Business Journal at a July 14 Event
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced its Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Kathy Crusco has been named Best CFO in Central Texas, in the category of large private company, by the Austin Business Journal – “the business authority for Central Texas.”
Crusco accepted the award July 14 at a reception for award nominees hosted by the journal in conjunction with MHBT, Inc., Wells Fargo and PwC at the Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas. Now in its 9th year, the annual Best CFO Awards program honors outstanding CFO’s in Central Texas. Crusco is featured in the journal’s July 15 special CFO Awards section.
Under Crusco’s leadership, Epicor has enjoyed a strong financial position and reputation. Crusco has played an integral role in forging the company’s leadership position in the enterprise software space through innovative financial growth strategies. Most recently, she orchestrated the pending acquisition of Epicor by global private equity firm KKR & Co.
Prior to this, she led the company through its most pivotal chapter in its history – the bringing together of Epicor Software and Activant Solutions in 2011 to form a combined single midmarket company with annual revenues of $825 million. Following this, she executed strategies to help drive the company’s growth to almost $1B in revenues prior to orchestrating the divestiture of a $150M business division that was outside the company’s core growth objectives.
“I’m pleased to see Kathy recognized for her exceptional leadership,” said Joe Cowan, president and CEO of Epicor Software. “Kathy is an extremely well-rounded CFO who handles all aspects of the role effortlessly. She consistently has found the means to support both top-line and bottom-line growth for Epicor in a challenging market and continues to formulate effective strategies to help grow the company, drive customer retention and reduce costs.”
Epicor and its executive management team continue to be recognized for excellence in the Texas business community. The company was recognized as the “Most Innovative Business Software Provider – Texas” in the Corporate America’s Software & Technology Awards 2015.
