James Lusk Of ABM Industries Incorporated Has Been Selected By ExecRank As A Top CFO For 2012

James Lusk, CFO at ABM Industries has been selected by the ranking committee of ExecRank as a “Top 150” CFO for 2012. The rankings are the result of two years of research and feedback from evaluation committees and top CFOs that yielded an algorithm for how to rank CFOs based on their performance in 24 key areas.

According to Chris Beaver, lead analyst for the CFO Rankings division of ExecRank, “We were extremely impressed with the achievements of Mr. Lusk. His work and reputation are highly regarded in the industry and amongst other CFOs.”

Mr. Lusk commented, “I’d like to thank ExecRank for the recognition. I am honored to be included on this list amongst an outstanding group of my peers for whom I have the deepest respect. Each day, I’m privileged to work alongside nearly 100,000 colleagues that continue to make ABM an industry leader, and this honor is a testament to the hard work and dedication of many.”

There are over 324,000 CFOs in the United States. Only the very best are awarded the distinction of being a part of ExecRank’s “Top CFOs” for 2012. As always, there was a premium on experience, but also on CFOs who took bold steps to help their companies gain greater fiscal control and oversight over their companies. In addition, this year in particular there was a heavy emphasis on technology adoption and social media leadership, as the CFOs near the top of our rankings readily embraced these incredible new tools of change.
