New York City, August 29, 2000 Today Complete-e Strategies announced that Marcia Kucher, a veteran in the financial industry, will serve as the companyıs Vice President of Finance.
Marcia also serves as Chief Financial Officer of the Sunrise Financial Group, a leading technology investment firm which backs Complete-e Strategies.
Dubbing itself an "e-business surrogate", Complete-e Strategies works with existing companies to identify untapped "genetic material" in their corporate assets, and to conceive of an entirely new, but complementary, line of business on the Web. Complete-e then steps in to give birth to the new entity by serving as interim management. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to consulting, Complete-e Strategies also supports clients with research-driven analysis, strategic partnering and financing.
In her role as Vice President of Finance, Kucher will oversee all financial aspects of Complete-e Strategies, including budgets, financial statements and annual reports. Marcia will also play an integral role in the company's "e-business surrogacy" interim management arrangements.
"With over 25 years experience in the financial arena, we're thrilled to have an industry expert like Marcia on board, " said Ron Dayan, President and CEO of Complete-e Strategies. "Marcia's expertise and sharp business skills will make her a valuable member of our team."
Before joining Complete-e Strategies, Kucher spent 3 years as CFO of Invemed Associates and 11 years as CFO of Brimberg & Co., both New York based securities firms where she was responsible for all financial reporting. A native of New York, Kucher attended Hunter College and received her securities education at the New York Institute of Finance.
