GlynnDevins Announces Scott Kokotan as New Chief Financial Officer Following National Search
KANSAS CITY, MO–GlynnDevins, a leading technology-enabled marketing firm serving the senior living sector, has named Scott Kokotan as its new chief financial officer (CFO). Kokotan emerged as the leading candidate following a nationwide search. Fenaroli & Associates, an executive search firm, assisted with the effort.
Kokotan, who officially steps into the role on March 25, will be responsible for managing GlynnDevins’ daily internal and external financial functions. This includes, but isn’t limited to, overseeing various departments such as Finance and Accounting, Human Resources, and Facilities and Operations, and assessing the current financial infrastructure to enable ongoing growth and acquisitions. He’ll also focus on continuing to improve the firm’s reporting, budgeting, planning and other financial processes.
“Scott is a key addition to our executive leadership team and we’re happy he’s decided to return to Kansas City,” said Sue McClure, GlynnDevins’ chief executive officer. “His guidance and oversight will be critical to help us execute our business strategy and to the continued evolution of our agency. His experience with tech-driven companies and private equity groups means he has considerable knowledge and understanding of our business, our ownership structure and our reputation as a senior living leader.”
Kokotan holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with an emphasis in accounting from the University of Iowa. He also earned an advanced accounting certification from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, as well as his Certified Public Accountant and Chartered Financial Analyst credentials. He’s held numerous CFO and executive leadership positions during his nearly 25-year career, most recently at HH Ventures, LLC, a wireless telecom and technology company in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
“GlynnDevins’ reputation as an industry leader was a huge draw for me, and I heard nothing but great things about the people, culture and direction of the firm,” said Kokotan. “I’m looking forward to helping enable more data-and tech-focused processes, and advancing our services to continue to best meet the needs of our clients.”
Kokotan replaces GlynnDevins’ outgoing CFO, Chris Smith, who announced late last year he was departing the agency after 18 years to pursue a career focused on personal advisory relationships.
