Last night, the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) awarded Paul Lalljie the Public Company CFO of the Year at their 16th Annual NVTC Greater Washington Technology CFO Awards. The NVTC CFO Awards recognizes local chief financial officers for outstanding achievement and excellence in promoting the area’s technology community.
Paul was recognized his leadership during our strong growth in revenue, earnings and cash flow over the course of 2011, even as we completed two acquisitions, a $250 million share buyback on an accelerated basis, and our first term loan for $600 million.
“I have never worked with a better CFO, or one that has played such as an important role in a company’s tremendous success,” said Lisa Hook, president and CEO, Neustar. “Paul skillfully managed Neustar’s most important year since the company was founded in 1998, by helping us complete the right transactions, at the right time, with the right financial structure. His brilliance enabled Neustar to access credit markets to fund our acquisitions while clearly communicating our strategy to our investors.”
We all agree! Congratulations, Paul, on this fantastic achievement.
