HUNTINGTON, WV – The Valley Health team is eager to announce the addition of Antonio Smith, CPA, who will be taking on the role of Senior Associate Vice President of Finance and Deputy Chief Financial Officer November 7.
Prior to joining the Valley Health team, Antonio spent a decade with Hayflich CPA as an Audit Manager, where he planned and executed multiple audits in various business sectors, including nonprofit, nonpublic, governmental, pension plans, and hospitals. He graduated from Marshall University in 2011 and holds a Certified Public Accountancy License with the West Virginia Board of Public Accountancy.
Throughout his career, Antonio has presented audit findings to leadership, provided recommendations to optimize financial efficiency, and worked in mentor capacities for professional development. Off the clock, Antonio enjoys playing sports and coaching his son in various athletics pursuits.
Antonio will be using his invaluable expertise to support Mary-Beth Brubeck, Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer, in matters of finance, auditing, and compliance.
