Private Company CFO of the Year (Medium): Nancy Hejran

Nancy Hejran
Clipper Corporation

Nancy Hejran has been the CFO & COO of Clipper Corporation for over three years. She has built a team from the ground up and created financial systems to help manage and drive the business.  She created Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to get the company on track and to manage growth. Over that first year, Hejran worked to create the SOPs and implement accounting and IT systems. She has instituted cross-department training programs to help each group better understand what the others were doing and how to best interact with each other instead of previous silos that had been established. She created an onboarding process for each new hire which entailed four weeks of training learning every aspect of the business. Her work to help improve company culture has also improved productivity and revenues. The company has grown 300% from $25 million when she first joined, to $70 million in revenue.  

Hejran is also realizing her American Dream. She came to the US after leaving Tehran at the age of 19, a single mom, who put herself though college while working full time and taking care of a toddler. She speaks multiple languages besides English, including Russian, Arabic, French and Persian. While at school, she developed strong math skills and obtained a master’s in finance and MBA. Hejran wows her colleagues by repeatedly overcoming any obstacle that comes her way and forging unity and excellence among her teams.
