Columbus County native named CFO at B&GH

October 26, 2020

Columbus County native Daniel M. Nolan was announced as the new Chief Financial Officer for Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina during the Board of Trustees meeting held Saturday, Oct. 24.

“It is my great pleasure to introduce Daniel as our new CFO,” said B&GH President Ricky Creech. “Daniel has more than six years of experience working as a Revenue Field Auditor for the North Carolina Department of Revenue. I look forward to seeing him apply his knowledge to help us lay the groundwork for financial longevity. This will be crucial for B&GH to continue to provide health, healing and hope for all that come through our doors.”

Nolan is looking forward to the opportunity to lead the finance department.

“I am not one to become complacent and I always seek tasks that challenge me both professionally and personally,” he said. “I see this position as an opportunity to apply my extensive financial and accounting knowledge to help guide B&GH to financial longevity.”

Nolan holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Accounting from Guilford College where he minored in Business Administration and Money and Finance. He is currently completing the coursework for a Master’s Degree in Finance and Investment Management at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington with a projected graduation date of May 2021.

“The insights I gained through my educational programs provided me the opportunity to advance professionally with a variety of accounting and auditing specialties within my role at the N.C. Department of Revenue,” Nolan said.

Included within those opportunities was being 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.

Accepting the position is a homecoming of sorts for Nolan.

“My father was a resident of B&GH from the age of 12 through adulthood,” said Nolan. “He and my mother also served as house parents in the Civitan and Kiwanis Cottages. I spent my early childhood at B&GH and I call it home. I have developed relationships with many of the residents and staff that have positively influenced me.”

Nolan will officially begin the position on Nov. 16.
