The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) announced that Jeff Tomitz has joined its staff as vice president of finance and administration. Tomitz is responsible for overseeing the financial activities of the organization and human resource management.
“First and foremost my role at NEMA includes ensuring the continued financial success of the organization by being a trusted steward of NEMA’s finances. Embedded in that goal is maintaining NEMA’s current financial systems including budgeting, forecasting, financial reporting and, of course, improving internal controls. This will be done in conjunction with looking for opportunities to implement new technologies and heightening levels of existing automation,” Tomitz said.
Tomitz comes to NEMA with 30 years of experience, more than 10 of which has been in public accounting.
Tomitz principally served the not-for-profit community within the Baltimore–D.C. metro corridor. Recently, he served as chief financial officer for the National Quality Forum and the American Council of Education.
“What appeals to me about NEMA is the important work it does to effectively
members’ interests and
maintain their broad access to domestic and global markets. Other attractions are the diversity of electroindusty technologies and products as well as the ability of senior leadership, including the Board of Governors, to quickly and decisively execute strategic decisions,” Tomitz said.
Tomitz graduated from St. John’s University in Jamaica, New York, and earned a graduate degree in finance from American University in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants.
