Tampa, FL — December 19, 2016 — Pilgrim Quality Solutions, a leading global provider of enterprise quality management software and services for the Life Sciences, today announced that Denise Schnier, Corporate Controller, has been honored with a SMARTI Award for her contributions to Pilgrim’s corporate finance operations. The award was bestowed on Schnier by Tampa’s Taylor White Accounting & Finance Placement and the Tampa chapter of the Florida Institute of CFOs (fiCFO).
According to these organizations, “Great companies universally appreciate the value of superior talent, and for that reason Taylor White and fiCFO created the annual SMARTI Awards for CFOs to recognize and honor exemplary employees and/or super-performing teams who have made an impact within their organizations.”
SMARTI is an acronym for State of the Art (S), Motivational (M), Adaptable (A), Re-engineering (R), Transformational (T), and Innovative (I). These combined attributes are the criteria on which award eligibility is based. Schnier was nominated by David Pincus, Pilgrim’s Chief Financial Officer, for her outstanding demonstration of these qualities.
“Over the past year, Denise took on several additional, key responsibilities such as planning & analysis, budgeting and forecasting,” Pincus said. “She has become a go-to person within the organization and has been instrumental in developing timely and actionable analyses and metrics. Denise’s efforts have resulted in a more insightful understanding of our business performance as Pilgrim continues to grow.”
