CICOA Announces Appointment of New Chief Financial Officer

Written by

CICOA is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Johnson as Chief Financial Officer, effective May 11. Johnson, a certified public accountant, joins CICOA with broad experience in accounting and finance, including as an outsourced CFO, in a variety of industries spanning healthcare, nonprofit, construction and information technology.

Before joining CICOA, Johnson held leadership positions at public accounting/professional service firms CliftonLarsonAllen and EY/Ernst & Young, as well as at the Indiana University School of Medicine and United Way of Central Indiana. Focus areas have included making process, cash flow and profitability improvements, enhancing financial forecasting and reporting, and mentoring/individual and team development.

An Indianapolis native, Johnson’s volunteer activities have included board chair of the Indiana Board of Accountancy, president of the Indianapolis chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants, and board member of the Indiana CPA Society. Johnson is a member of the Indianapolis Business Journal’s 2004 “Forty Under 40” class, and he holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Indiana University-Bloomington.

“We are delighted to have Michael on board,” said Tauhric Brown, CICOA president and chief executive officer. “CICOA is in great financial standing, and he will help lead organizational change that optimizes CICOA for success and future growth.”

“I am honored to be part of such a wonderful organization,” Johnson said. “I grew up in Indianapolis, so it’s important to me to see quality of life thrive in our city and state. While I do have an extensive background in nonprofits, more of my recent experience has been in the for-profit space; so I get really excited about process improvement and infrastructure development in support of new strategic plan goals.”

The search was led by Sam Odle of Alder Bowman, who commented, “We are proud to serve CICOA, an organization that improves the quality of life of thousands of Hoosiers.”
