ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal has named Warren Zaccaro, Securian Financial Group’s executive vice president, chief financial officer and chief compliance officer, a “CFO of the Year” as part of the publication’s annual recognition of top-tier Twin Cities financial executives.
Zaccaro, recognized by the Business Journal as a 2017 CFO of the Year in the large private company category, joined Securian 12 years ago after working 20 years as a CPA with accounting firm KPMG.
At Securian, Zaccaro’s management duties include controller and treasury, enterprise actuarial and risk management, tax and auditing, mergers and acquisitions, medical, information protection and cyber security.
His financial leadership has served Securian well in both strong and challenging national economic environments, resulting in consistent growth and sustained high financial ratings from the four independent ratings agencies.
“It’s clear that Warren is an excellent financial steward for Securian,” says Chris Hilger, Securian’s chairman, president and CEO. “Warren’s contributions to Securian, though, go much further than our finances. Warren understands our company and each of our businesses extremely well. He is involved in virtually all aspects of our operations. I personally appreciate the insights Warren provides, and I truly value his counsel and friendship. He is very deserving of this honor.”
The Business Journal honored Zaccaro and its other CFOs of the Year at a luncheon held November 9 at the JW Marriott at Mall of America in Bloomington. Read the Business Journal’s profile of Zaccaro.
