BGHNC CFO earns Masters in Finance

May 19, 2021

Lake Waccamaw, NC – Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina Chief Financial Officer Daniel Nolan has earned his Master’s Degree in Finance & Investment Management (MSF) from the University of North Carolina – Wilmington.

“Obtaining my Master’s was a goal I set for myself to push myself and acquire more knowledge,” said Nolan. “I mapped my career aspirations and determined obtaining my Master’s in Finance solidified my educational background for my larger dreams and goals. I also wanted to break barriers by being the first in my family lineage to obtain this education level.”

Nolan joined the BGHNC team in November after spending more than six years working as a Revenue Field Auditor for the North Carolina Department of Revenue. In that position he was a co-founding member of NCDOR’s Business Intelligence Analytics Programs for Audit Selection where he assisted in the development of essential software and databases for audit initiatives. Nolan also served as a trainer across the state to implement those initiatives

“Daniel’s knowledge, experience, and commitment to continuous learning make him an invaluable member of our leadership team,” said BGHNC President/CEO Ricky Creech. “He is crucial in helping BGHNC provide an environment of care that promotes health, healing and hope among children, youth and families who enter our continuum of care.”

Nolan plans to continue applying what he has learned to the benefit BGHNC.

“Understanding money and how we can utilize money to work for us, rather than us working for money has really helped me as CFO,” said Nolan. “Understanding Finance at the Master’s level has really expanded my knowledge base which allows me to apply advanced concepts to put Boys and Girls Homes in the best position for success.”
