PALATINE, Illinois (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
Taking the reins from retiring CFO Linda LaPorte, Kim Tyler will be responsible for leading the financial and administrative efforts for Little City as Chief Financial and Administrative Officer. Little City provides innovative and personalized services to children and adults with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Tyler spent several years on the corporate side preparing budgets/forecasts, managing revenue, preparing financial statements, reporting on the financial health of both cost and profit centers, and providing financial acumen and advice to operational/commercial business units to assist them with achieving their financial and operational objectives. As she transitioned to the non-profit side, she engaged in managing the accounting and operations for entities in the education arena, as well as interacting and providing guidance to boards of directors.
Tyler holds an undergraduate degree in accounting, a M.B.A. in Finance and Marketing from Northwestern University and is a Certified Public Accountant. Most recently Tyler was the Finance and Operations officer for an Illinois Special Education Cooperative.
“From the moment we first met Kim, it was clear that she is a person with great integrity, courage and commitment. She has the courage to say no, the heart to say yes, can face the truth and will do the right thing because it is right,” stated Little City Executive Director Shawn E. Jeffers. “She will be a major player as Little City takes on the new challenges and opportunities before us.”
