CFO’s financial insight, leadership key to Sunset’ double-digit growth and client-first focus
ST. LOUIS, May 19, 2015 — Sunset Transportation, a leader in third party logistics (3PL) and freight payment, announces that its Chief Financial Officer, Mark Cammarata, has been named 2015 CFO of the Year by the St. Louis Business Journal. Cammarata is being honored in the small corporation category as one of the best financial stewards in St. Louis based on his achievements at Sunset over the past several years.
Since joining Sunset Transportation in 2006, Cammarata has played a pivotal role in the success and growth of the company.
While overseeing Sunset’s finance, information technology and human resources, Cammarata has enhanced financial measurables and analytics, elevating the business while limiting overall exposure and risks. He has also designed reporting and fiscal benchmarks for accounting, employee benefit programs, systems management and building maintenance to support Sunset’s growing footprint at its St. Louis headquarters and its four branches across the U.S.
As a core member of Sunset’s four-person executive management team, Cammarata’s analysis sets the stage for budgeting, office and personnel expansion, employee incentives and market share growth across Sunset.
“Our 3PL business is driven by metrics and numbers, and Mark’s ability to translate our financial capabilities into useable data has helped us create success across every facet of our organization,” said Lindsey Graves, vice president of operations. “Mark also excels at understanding people and different styles of communication. His finesse as an interpreter helps bridge communication gaps, and his calm, consistent leadership style is a steadying force in the organization.”
To Cammarata, earning this award is confirmation that Sunset’s dedication to excellence is resulting in better service and stability for customers and employees.
“Winning this award is an honor that reflects on the high standards of ethics and fiscal responsibility embraced by our entire company—it’s confirmation that we’re excelling in our commitments to our customers and industry partners. We’re focused on helping our customers become more profitable, while also building a solid, sustainable future as a company,” said Cammarata.
The St. Louis Business Journal’s CFO of the Year awards are given annually to honor the St. Louis area’s top financial executives in four categories. The award will be presented to Cammarata on May 21 at the CFO of the Year Awards event at the Chase Park Plaza in downtown St. Louis.
