View CFO J.D. Fay Named CFO of the Year in Silicon Valley
Congratulations are in order for our CFO, J.D. Fay, winner of Silicon Valley Business Journal’s 2016 CFO of the Year award! J.D. was honored alongside 10 other CFOs at an awards ceremony last night and took home the top honors in the venture-backed company category. He was recognized for his contributions in a number of areas, including company growth, leadership skills and successful direction and delegation of corporate finances.
J.D. joined View’s ranks in 2013, shortly after the team brought View Dynamic Glass to market. As CFO, he has been a key member of the executive team who has helped View become the dominant player in the dynamic glass industry. One of his major achievements is helping View raise hundreds of millions of dollars in equity funding and attracting a diverse group of investment partners, from GE Capital to the New Zealand Super Fund, to help increase our manufacturing capabilities and market penetration.
J.D.’s responsibilities extend beyond the typical CFO. In addition leading all aspects of View’s financial operations and development and setting financial strategies, he oversees HR, facilities, IT and stock administration at View. His diverse skillset is one not found in many CFOs and speaks to his versatility as a leader.
We are proud to work alongside this award-winning leader and see his achievements recognized by the publication of record for Silicon Valley. Congratulations, J.D.!
