Pact names new chief financial officer

Pact has appointed Bruce Pankey as its chief financial officer.

Pankey begins in his new role today.

“Bruce brings impressive technical and leadership skills, and on top of that, he is an excellent match with Pact's culture and values," said Mark Viso, Pact's president and CEO. "As we continue to strive for a world where all people have the opportunity to own their future, I know Bruce will help us on that journey.”

Pankey brings decades of financial leadership experience from a range of organizations, including education institutions, private companies and a nonprofit. He joins Pact from Catholic Charities USA, where he served as senior vice president for finance and CFO.

Prior to Catholic Charities, Pankey spent three years in the same role at the National Labor College in Silver Spring. Before that he served for 10 years as the director for finance at The George Washington University. In that position he introduced monthly budgeting university-wide as well as quarterly business review meetings. He also designed and implemented a web-based budgeting and forecasting system that significantly decreased annual budget processing time.

Pankey’s private sector experience includes time at NCR Government Systems and Getronics Government Services. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Olivet Nazarene University and an MBA from Averett University.

“Pact’s mission is one that I believe in wholeheartedly,” Pankey said. “I’m thrilled to be joining a team that is making a difference for people around the globe and looking ahead to the future.”
