The Philadelphia Business Journal has named CMI/Compas CFO John Donovan as one of the top CFOs of the Year. The winners are chosen for exhibiting excellence in strategic thinking, financial management, and contributing to their company’s reputation.

Donovan was chosen for his significant achievements in 2016, which included his role in the successful acquisition of CMI by holding company WPP and the merger of CMI and Ogilvy CommonHealth Medical Media. Also under Donovan’s leadership, Compas revenue has doubled, and CMI revenue has quadrupled, and at the same time budget/spend goals were exceeded. He is the architect on client and supplier agreements, and is responsible for all contracts. His superior negotiations skills have resulted in millions of dollars in savings, reduced risk and greater profitability.

“It is fitting that John is honored as a top CFO by the same organization that has recognized our company for our dedication to a positive work environment. John has been a critical part of not just our organization’s financial success, but also our success as a great place to work. At CMI/Compas, John has implemented strategy, growth, and financial success behind our pharmaceutical clients and the agency itself,” noted CMI/Compas CEO and Founder Stan Woodland.

Donovan is heavily involved in CMI/Compas’ philanthropic efforts offering his time and services for many efforts including the 20-year-running Adopt-a-Family program which helps families in need during the holiday season.

Donovan was honored along with the other top CFOs at an awards reception on July 14, 2016.
