The PFM Group, a US provider of independent financial advisory services to governments and non-profit organisations, has named Robert Delany as a managing director and chief financial officer (CFO).
Delany’s hiring is the result of an extensive search for an executive with his experience, and reflects both PFM’s robust growth and the firm’s commitment to continuing to build on a solid financial platform. He was most recently CFO and chief operating officer (COO) for Sciens Capital Management, where he managed strategic planning, acquisitions and corporate development. Prior to that, he managed similar functions as executive vice president (EVP) and COO for European operations for American Financial Realty Trust/European Financial Realty.
Delany holds both a BSc degree in Accounting and a MSc degree in Finance from Drexel University, LeBow College of Business in Philadelphia, where he also previously served as an adjunct professor.
