Washington, D.C. — National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) President and CEO Gordon Smith announced today that Téa Gennaro will assume the role of executive vice president and chief financial officer at NAB starting November 23. Most recently, Gennaro served as chief financial officer of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC National) in Washington, D.C.
As EVP of Finance and CFO, Gennaro will lead NAB’s financial operations, including internal and external reporting, audit, tax, financial systems and the budget process.
Previously, Gennaro oversaw the accounting, finance and facilities functions at ABC National and its affiliated organizations, including the association’s political action committee, retirement and savings plan, foundation and for-profit subsidiary. Prior to her promotion to CFO, Gennaro was the controller at ABC National overseeing Finance and Accounting.
Formerly, Gennaro was a controller in the Outsourced Accounting Client Service branch of Tate & Tryon, a CPA firm specializing in associations and other non-profits.
“After an extensive search, it became clear that Téa was an exceptional fit for the NAB CFO position,” said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. “NAB and our members will be well-served by her leadership, vision and financial expertise as she fills this vital role.”
