To Field Leaders:

I am writing to announce the departure of John Fuqua, Vice President of Finance.
 
John has worked tirelessly to help SCORE transition to our Centralized Accounting program, and we are grateful for these efforts, as well as those during his 9 years at SCORE.

We know the role of Vice President of Finance is critical, so we are immediately bringing on a temporary Vice President of Finance to fill the gap while we search for the permanent replacement. Rick Peluso most recently served at a nonprofit trade association as a COO, where he oversaw membership, meetings and events, finance, administration, human resources and information technology. In this role, Rick developed and implemented the association's $20 million budget, oversaw full cycle accounting (A/R, A/P, grant reporting, financial statement preparation, month/year-end closing process) and streamlined the AP process by implementing Bill.com.
 
On behalf of everyone at SCORE, please let us all wish John good luck for the future. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly with your thoughts or questions.


Bridget Weston
Acting CEO
