Amid one retirement, All Faiths Food Bank in Sarasota has named a new CFO.
Following Michael Ziebell’s retirement on Sept. 2, Timothy Taylor stepped into the role bringing finance, logistics, operations and business analytics experience with him. Ziebell has been with the organization since 2018. He was promoted to CFO in 2019.
“I’m very excited to be joining such a great organization and its outstanding senior leadership team," Taylor says in a news release. "I am looking forward to working with all of the work areas at AFFB and with our neighbors in the community, to optimize benefit delivery through efficient financial stewardship of contributions from our donor partners.”
In his new position, Taylor will lead the organization’s financial reporting and operations in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as well as other regulatory requirements. He’ll also collaborate with department heads to implement budgets and department reports, and will be responsible for analyzing financial trends.
Most recently, Taylor was the senior director of finance and human resources for the Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity.
“Especially as the U.S. economy continues to be in turmoil — with higher costs for essentials such as food and gas impacting individuals and families as well as food bank operations — it is critical to have a professional with extensive experience and skills in the CFO role,” Sandra Frank, CEO, says in the release. “Timothy’s ability to not only manage the day-to-day financial operations but also to analyze budgets, financial trends and forecasts will be essential as we strive to stretch each and every dollar and maximize community benefit.”
