After an extensive search and several rounds of interviews, John Nocera was hired as director of the AVMA Finance and Business Services Division. He fills a position left vacant for more than a year.
Nocera brings to the job more than 26 years of experience in the not-for-profit and business arenas. For the past three years, he was chief financial officer for Executive Administration Inc., an association management consulting firm specialized in managing professional medical societies.
“One basic responsibility of every member organization is careful stewardship of financial resources, which, in our case, come principally from member dues,” AVMA President Douglas G. Aspros said. “John brings a solid resume of experience in the not-for-profit sector in addition to his soft skills, and will be a valuable member of an already solid leadership team.”
Nocera began his new role in mid-November 2012. As CFO and director of the Association’s finance and business division, he will provide the vision, strategic planning, leadership, development, implementation, and ongoing management for the AVMA’s financial policies, operations, and functions.
“It’s an honor for me to be selected as the AVMA’s director of finance and business services. I am excited about the opportunity to join this great organization and help lead the way for much continued success into the future.” Nocera said.
Prior to his work for Executive Administration, Nocera, a certified public accountant, spent eight years as CFO for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, based in Chicago.
Nocera began his career at Ernst & Young and has also served as the managing director/CFO of subsidiary operations for SmithBucklin, a leading association management consulting firm, and as CFO for Bigsby & Kruthers, a large clothing retailer based in Chicago.
