Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services (OPRS), a leader in quality living options and innovative services for older adults, announced Bob Stillman has joined the non-profit organization as chief financial officer.
Stillman's strong financial leadership and vision will help accelerate strategic growth and promote resourcefulness.
OPRS President/CEO Laurence C. Gumina says the new CFO has the right combination of financial, non-profit and long-term care know-how.
"Stillman has more than 23 years of public accounting experience and has served on and advised not-for-profits and foundations. He has specialty knowledge that's focused in senior living and services and has been recognized for his leadership and personnel development," says Gumina.
Stillman, 46, most recently served as an assurance partner for GBQ Partners, LLC, having joined the firm in 1999. He led the Columbus-based accounting firm's healthcare and non-profit organization practices.
From 1991 to 1999, he exclusively served long-term care providers for the public accounting firm Cummins, Krasik & Hohl. He started his career with KPMG, an audit, tax and advisory services firm.
Stillman says he chose OPRS because he wants to use his skills and experience to support health care entities with underlying missions of providing quality care.
He took over as OPRS' chief financial officer in April, succeeding Tom Kelly, who served in the same role since 2009.
A member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants, Stillman also has been active with LeadingAge Ohio and the Ohio Health Care Association. He served as a former chair and board member for the First Community Foundation and as a former treasurer and member for the Ohio Association of Non-Profit Organizations. He currently serves as the treasurer for the Swim & Racquet Club in Upper Arlington.
Stillman holds a bachelor's degree in business administration, with a concentration in accounting, from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. He and his wife, Laura, and their two daughters, Mary Lynn and Allison, live in Upper Arlington.
