Wakefield & Associates, LLC, an ACA International member company, announced last week that Matt Stauffer, a seasoned financial executive, has joined the company’s leadership team as its new chief financial officer.

Stauffer brings more than 30 years of diverse finance experience in both building and scaling large and mid-size organizations through organic growth and mergers and acquisitions (M&A). Before joining Wakefield, he served as CFO of ACT Holdings, the parent company of Convergent Outsourcing, and previously held other senior leadership positions at Convergent and Transworld Systems Inc.

“Matt is a proven CFO with a great track record of success playing a strategic role in value creation,” said Wakefield President and CEO Matt Laws. “His impressive background leading large-scale finance initiatives will make him a strong partner as we execute on our growth plan.”

As the new CFO, Stauffer will lead Wakefield’s finance organization and financial activities, including financial planning and reporting, internal audits and cash management.

“I am thrilled to join Wakefield alongside the seasoned leadership team they have built over the last few years,” said Stauffer. “The company has incredible continued growth opportunities and I look forward to working with Wakefield’s employees and partners to seize these opportunities to enhance value for all stakeholders.”

Laws added, “We are excited to welcome Matt to the Wakefield executive team. As we consider our plans to grow and scale the business, it’s imperative that we continue to expand our finance, accounting, and M&A capacity accordingly. Wakefield’s ability to attract a national finance executive of Matt’s caliber is a testament to the appeal of our opportunity, the strength of our strategy, and the strong performance of our business.”
