Pittsburgh, PA – Pittsburgh Business Times revealed their slate of winners for the 2020 CFO of the Year Awards, selecting Center for Victims’ Amy Cortes for the honor alongside a cohort of professional powerhouses including Civil & Environmental Consultants Inc.’s Harry Soose, who has received the career achievement award, as well as Schneider Downs & Co. Inc.’s Christine Timko and ServiceLink’s David Holland.


The Pittsburgh Business Times created the CFO of the Year Awards to honor financial professionals in western Pennsylvania for “outstanding performance as corporate financial stewards.” Recipients of the prestigious award have included exemplary financial leaders across many local industries.


For Laurie MacDonald, President and CEO at Center for Victims, Cortes has been a steadfast pillar of the agency: “In all the years we have worked together we have never had a deficit nor have we ever had an unbalanced budget. Even when times were tough, Amy somehow managed to make sure that we did not experience any financial problems. Amy deserves to be recognized as one of the finest CFOs in our region and certainly in our human service sector.” Center for Victims provides free services for victims of crime, serving over 17,000 people every year in Allegheny County alone. Cortes has helped the agency achieve its mission for 18 years and has no plans on stopping anytime soon.


Traditionally an annual in-person event, this year’s awards ceremony will take place virtually due to the pandemic on Thursday November 19, 2020 from 3 – 4pm. Registration is free and can be done by following this link.
