West Sacramento, Calif. — David Ebenezer has been named as Rural Community Assistance Corporation’s (RCAC) Chief Financial Officer. Ebenezer replaces Kevin McCumber, who led the organization’s financial unit since 2000.
RCAC’s executive team appointed Ebenezer after an extensive and exhaustive nation-wide search. Ebenezer is a long-time RCAC employee, who previously was the organization’s controller, overseeing Finance, Grants and Contracts at RCAC’s headquarters in West Sacramento. He was acting CFO from January 2010 to January 2011 and June thru October 2014. Ebenezer has more than 30 years’ experience and is skilled in financial and organizational management, nonprofit accounting, financial reporting and governmental regulations for such organizations. He developed and manages the $16 million corporate budget and more than 150 revenue centers.
“David has been an excellent controller; he is also very committed to RCAC’s work,” said Stanley Keasling, RCAC CEO. “I am really pleased that he came out on top in the national competition to be our next CFO.”
McCumber announced his decision to start a new chapter in his life earlier this year, and is helping Ebenezer ease into his new role as CFO.
“It is an exciting time to be at RCAC with several new program initiatives, a new strategic plan, and the implementation of a new integrated back-office software platform,” said Ebenezer. “I am honored to be selected as RCAC’s second CFO and I look forward to building on Kevin’s legacy”.
