“We are thrilled to welcome Kimberly to our leadership team,” says Nico Leone, President & CEO of KERA. “KERA is growing at an exciting pace and deepening its critical services to North Texas. We couldn’t be happier to welcome Kimberly at this time, to help lead that growth and the organization’s financial sustainability.”
“Joining KERA is a unique opportunity,” says Singleton. “It combines my career passion of using financial data to drive improved performance with one of my life passions — giving everyone access to information impactful to their lives. I am very excited to be a part of the team.”
Singleton is a Certified Public Accountant and holds her bachelor and master’s degrees in accounting from the University of Texas at Austin. The Dallas native has enjoyed a long and successful career as a CFO/VP of Finance for several companies, most recently with the digital pharma startup, Alto Pharmacy. Singleton is also an active member of the North Texas community and passionate about serving its residents. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Dallas Arboretum and AT LAST! — an urban boarding experience.
Earlier in 2022, KERA’s previous CFO, Wanda Mizutowicz, announced her retirement. At that time, KERA partnered with Ellis Kirk Group for this search — an executive search firm with a commitment to creating diverse candidate pools.
Singleton began her tenure at KERA on Tuesday, May 31.
