On 2 Au­gust - Lin­coln E. Greenidge, CFO of LeadFX, and Vice Pres­i­dent, Fi­nance & Con­troller of the Enirgi Group Cor­po­ra­tion has been named "Top Vice Pres­i­dent of the Year in Fi­nance” for 2016, by the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Top Pro­fes­sion­als (IAOTP)!

While in­clu­sion with the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Top Pro­fes­sion­als is an honor in it­self, only a few mem­bers in each dis­ci­pline are cho­sen for this dis­tinc­tion. These spe­cial hon­orees are dis­tin­guished based on their pro­fes­sional ac­com­plish­ments, aca­demic achieve­ments, lead­er­ship abil­i­ties, longevity in the field, other affiliations and con­tri­bu­tions to their com­mu­ni­ties. All hon­orees are in­vited to at­tend the IAOTP’s an­nual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achieve­ments.

With over 25 years of pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence in the fi­nance in­dus­try, Lin­coln has cer­tainly proved him­self as an ac­com­plished pro­fes­sional and ex­pert in the field. Start­ing out in the mid 80’s straight out of sec­ondary school, Lin­coln knew he wanted to be in fi­nance. Orig­i­nally start­ing as a ju­nior ac­coun­tant, he then worked as a bank clerk and was quickly pro­moted each year gain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in many ar­eas of bank­ing, in­clud­ing for­eign ex­change. In 1995 Lin­coln grad­u­ated with hon­ors from the Univer­sity of Ot­tawa, with his de­gree in Ac­count­ing, and was hired at Price­wa­ter­house­Coop­ers. With this com­pany Lin­coln gained ex­pe­ri­ence in au­dit­ing clients in var­i­ous in­dus­tries in­clud­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing, non­profit and fi­nan­cial ser­vices. Con­tin­u­ing on his jour­ney, Lin­coln landed at the cor­po­rate of­fice of Nor­tel Net­works (one of the largest com­pa­nies in Canada at that time) where he ob­tained ex­pe­ri­ence in for­eign ex­change and hedg­ing anal­y­sis of mul­ti­ple currencies, fi­nan­cial re­port­ing and fi­nan­cial planning for Nor­tel. In 2002, he joined MDS, as Di­rec­tor of Fi­nance and Chief ac­coun­tant where he learned how to build high per­for­mance fi­nance teams and gained ex­pe­ri­ence in the life sciences. For the next eight years, Lin­coln worked as a Cor­po­rate Con­troller for a Dry Food Pro­ducer; with seven of these years as he held the po­si­tion of cor­po­rate con­troller of IAMGOLD and Hud­bay.

In 2013, Lin­coln joined Enirgi Group, a pri­vate global industrials and chem­i­cal com­pany with four unique di­vi­sions that own and op­er­ate world-class as­sets and oper­a­tions lo­cated in the US, Aus­tralia, and Argentina. Enirgi Group’s tar­get sec­tors in­clude met­als and min­ing, chem­i­cals, di­ver­si­fied industrials, oil and gas, and util­i­ties. As Vice Pres­i­dent of Fi­nance and con­troller at Enirgi Group, Lin­coln’s key re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in­clude but are not limited to: Fi­nan­cial Re­port­ing; Ac­count­ing; Fi­nan­cial Anal­y­sis; Fi­nan­cial Reg­u­la­tory Com­pli­ance; Fore­cast­ing; Bud­gets; IT; Pos­i­tive Cash Flow Gen­er­a­tion; Fi­nan­cial lec­tur­ing, and De­vel­op­ing Tal­ent. Lin­coln says his “pas­sion is in build­ing fi­nance teams and lead­er­ship in or­der to change the view of many Fi­nance pro­fes­sion­als to val­ueadded con­trib­u­tors, in­stead of back of­fice pa­per push­ers and re­port gen­er­a­tors.” This past De­cem­ber 2015, LeadFX an­nounced that from Lin­coln’s longevity and ex­pe­ri­ence in the min­ing and other man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­tries, he was ap­pointed Chief Fi­nan­cial Of­fi­cer of the com­pany.

Lin­coln has writ­ten 3 ar­ti­cles, which have been pub­lished and has been rec­og­nized world­wide for his out­stand­ing lead­er­ship and com­mit­ment to the pro­fes­sion. On April 22, 2015 he was fea­tured in PULSE for the “End of Good­will Ac­count­ing.” On June 4, 2015 pub­lished “Spring Clean­ing for Ac­counts” in PULSE, and on July 8th 2015 he pub­lished “Peo­ple, Process, and Tech­nol­ogy” in PULSE. He was named “Out­stand­ing Pro­fes­sional of the Year” by Who’s Who of Dis­tin­guished Alumni and was se­lected as “Top VP & CFO of the Year” by the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Top Pro­fes­sion­als.

Looking back, Lin­coln at­tributes his suc­cess to putting peo­ple first and his pas­sion for mo­ti­vat­ing team mem­bers to in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity. He un­der­stands that his job is not just about crunch­ing num­bers or pre­par­ing re­ports; rather he is a valu­able as­set that con­trib­utes to every part of the com­pany. His hard work, per­se­ver­ance and pas­sion for help­ing peo­ple, keeps him con­tin­u­ing to thrive. For the fu­ture he will con­tinue to grow as a pro­fes­sional, and help Enirgi Group to pros­e­cute its growth strat­egy.
