Success Stories

I come from a very humble upbringing; both my parents were blue-collar workers. IMA has been my professional family, and it’s really helped me develop into the leader that I am for Cummins.

Corporate Purchasing Finance Director, Cummins

I’ve met some of my best friends through IMA, and I’m still in contact with them 20 years later…. When I’m looking for a job, I’ve been able to reach out to the network to seek assistance, guidance, and counsel: ‘Do you know people in this organization? Can you assist me here? Can you give me a reference?’

Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, WGBH

I think it’s important to meet people in different industries and organizations. So for me, IMA gives me that bridge outside my organization, and I can bring different ideas from the outside in, which I think is important as well.

My favorite part is the continuing education because it’s always good to learn something—maybe a new approach to something I’ve always known or a new concept that just emerged in the last few years.

Strategic Finance is a wonderful publication. Every month, there’s some article that’s spot-on to what I’m dealing with in my work with clients. In fact, just a couple weeks ago, I had to do an ethics presentation, and I actually used an SEC whistleblower article from Strategic Finance. It’s a great tool.
