May Member Spotlight

Tonya Zweier kicked off our Q2 Roundtable Series on “Technology and the CFO: Is the Future of Finance New Technology or New People” as our featured guest.  Tonya is the Chief Financial Officer at McBee Associates, a leader in providing managerial and financial consulting services in the health care industry. She has over 25 years of experience developing and implementing financial solutions for a wide range of challenges for businesses in rapid growth, and has held a number of Chief Financial Officer roles at a variety of different companies in the technology and software development spaces.

Tonya brought a unique angle to the conversation, as she just recently joined the McBee team in January. She leads the finance team to enhance their strategic direction and focuses on budgeting, forecasting, productivity tracking and many other areas to predict revenue and profit streams. She works with senior leadership to advance analytics and decision-making tools for continued growth. Tonya discussed the challenges in learning to adopt new technology systems, enhance processes and ensure smooth data flow when you start a new role. She highlighted the importance of having the right team in place and mentioned that the main trait she looks for in hiring finance talent is curiosity. While McBee has implemented a number of sophisticated technologies, Tonya did not hesitate to say that Excel is the most important tool she uses to run her business on a daily basis.
