FSA Federal, a government contractor serving U.S. federal law enforcement and homeland security agencies, announced today that Chandler Terry has joined the company as vice president of finance and accounting, reporting directly to FSA’s president, George Mendiola.
As the top finance officer, Terry will provide strategic leadership for all aspects of FSA Federal’s finance functions, including capital resources, forecasting, treasury, financial services, accounting, payroll, audit support and SOX compliance. He plans to focus on process improvement to support the company’s growth goals, manage financial controls, and mitigate risk.
“Chandler is a results-driven leader who believes in turning insight into action to improve the business,” said Mendiola. “As we enter a new era of expansion into adjacent markets within the federal homeland security and law enforcement communities, his well-proven capabilities will help us realize our goals.”
