7-10-12 New Treasurer Announced for Southeastern California Conference
Strauss has served as associate treasurer for the conference since November 2010. Part of his responsibilities included managing the conference audit, performing accounting of all the bond transactions and assisting with the implementation of the NAD treasury software.
Strauss came to SECC from Loma Linda University where he worked in multiple senior management positions. When he left, he was the senior vice president for financial affairs. Prior to his time at LLU, he worked in the private audit sector as well as for the General Conference Auditing service. Strauss holds a MBA from La Sierra University, a BBA from Pacific Union College as well as a CPA license.
He replaces Thomas Staples, who retired at the end of June. Staples served 18 years as SECC treasurer and he has over 40 years of denomination employment experience around the globe.
“I am excited about the opportunity to provide good and effective leadership and follow the tradition that Tom Staples set. I look forward to continuing to work with the treasury department staff in this new capacity as well as the challenges that we will face together,” stated Strauss.
