NAB Names Téa Gennaro Chief Financial Officer
The National Association of Broadcasters today appointed Téa Gennaro executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective Nov. 23. She joins the association from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC National) in Washington, where she was chief financial officer.
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 nonprofits.
“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.”
Gennaro has a M.B.A in global business from Virginia Polytechnic University and a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Pensacola Christian College. She is a Certified Public Accountant and an award-winning professional. In 2017, she was honored with the “Trending 40 Association and Non-Profit Finance Leaders” award by DCA Live and in 2018 received the “Nonprofit CFO of the Year, Rising Star” award.
Gennaro serves on the board of governors of The Greater Washington Society of CPAs, an organization serving more than 3,000 CPA and non-CPA members in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
Gennaro replaces former NAB CFO Trish Johnson, who recently transitioned to a consultancy role.
