Each year, the Saint Louis Business Journal nominates business leaders for its CFO of the Year awards program. This year’s nominees demonstrated excellence in contributing to their company’s growth and profitability, as well as contributions to other areas of corporate management. David Levinson, CFO of CrowdSource, is one of three finalists selected in the small corporation division (revenue below $99.9 million).
“It is an honor to be nominated alongside some of the best and brightest CFOs in the Saint Louis area,” noted Levinson. “Truly, this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire CrowdSource team.”
Under David’s leadership, revenue grew 900% in 2012 and is forecasted to grow 600% in 2013. Furthermore, during 2012, David raised $12.5 million in Series A funding from Highland Capital Partners, which represented the highest company valuation in the industry and the largest capital raise among its competitors. The capital raise will allow CrowdSource to continue expanding its scalable content solutions for enterprise clients.
Stephanie Leffler, CEO of CrowdSource, understands firsthand the knowledge and expertise David brings to the table as CFO of CrowdSource. “David not only provides financial expertise, but also brings a wealth of experience to our leadership team,” noted Leffler. “His past experience with Ernst & Young offered him a window into the inner workings of a number of businesses, which has helped tremendously with the rapid growth of CrowdSource.”
In addition to leading CrowdSource’s financial operations, David leads corporate development, legal, human resources and facilities management.
