SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clickbooth’s (Clickbooth.com, LLC) Chief Financial Officer, Michael Hickman, has been chosen as a nominee of the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2019 CFO of the Year. Hickman joined Clickbooth in October 2016 to oversee a wide array of strategic financial management for Clickbooth and its divisions.
“Having Mike as our CFO has been transformative to our business,” said Erin Cigich, Chief Executive Officer of Clickbooth. “He embodies Einstein's idea that ‘if you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand it well enough.’ His reporting and analysis have enabled our business to confidently acquire businesses and grow organically… and, on top of that, he is a pleasure to work with and a true cultural cofounder of our company.”
Hickman was born and raised in Brandon, FL, and received both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Accounting from the University of Florida. As a Certified Public Accountant, Hickman’s specializations range from acquisition integration and accounting, to systems implementation and project management. His knowledge of acquisitions and mergers has been particularly beneficial for Clickbooth as the company has experienced rapid expansion, acquiring two companies in a nine-month span.
“I am honored to be selected as an honoree for the 2019 CFO of the Year Award," Hickman said. "It is humbling to be recognized with this peer group of CFOs. More importantly, I see this as recognition for my family and the Clickbooth team; without their help and support, achievements like this would not be possible.”
Hickman is an integral part of both Clickbooth’s success and unique, fun company culture.
CEO Cigich considers Clickbooth’s people to be its greatest asset, and this recognition from TBBJ only reinforces the exceptional talent and passion on the team.
