John Endres, SVP of finance, CFO and treasurer of Schenectady, N.Y.-based Golub Corp., the owner and operator of 128 supermarkets under the Price Chopper banner, was recognized as Large Private Company Chief Financial Officer of the Year at The Capital Region Business Review’s second annual CFO of the Year awards ceremony.
After earning his accounting degree from Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y., in 1975, Endres immediately joined Golub as a junior accountant and rose through the ranks to his present position. Additionally, Endres’ dedication to his daily workout inspired him to advocate the construction of the 8,300-square-foot employee fitness center at the new Golub headquarters.
Awards were given in six categories: public company, large private company (annual revenues over $50 million), medium private company (annual revenues $20 million to $49 million), small private company (annual revenues under $20 million), nonprofit, and Future Financial Executive (presented to a college student.) Judging for the awards was undertaken by an independent panel headed by The Business Review editor Mike Hendricks, with winners chosen based on information provided through the nomination process.
The Business Review, a subsidiary of American City Business Journals, is the weekly business publication of New York’s Capital Region.
Golub’s Price Choppers are located in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Vermont. The corporation’s more than 24,000 associates collectively own 52 percent of its privately held stock.
