Nick Tarditti began his career at Psomas January 1, 2020, as only the third CFO in the company’s 75-year history. Tarditti knew Psomas was a company where he could meaningfully contribute to the organization’s bottom line, both in terms of operational efficiencies and profitability. When the CFO position became available, he leaped at the opportunity, arming himself with key references from those he had earned during his 20+ year career. Once he came on board at Psomas, similar to other places he had worked, he quickly learned there was much more work to do below the surface. The accounting department needed more than a morale boost; it needed a better operational approach. As a people-first leader, Traditti spent time getting to know his colleagues to determine where he could increase efficiencies, lower stress levels and improve culture.
