Chief Financial Officer
Cindy Platko was appointed Chief Financial Officer of Sutherland Produce in January 2014. Previously, she served the company as an independent contractor since 1998 providing a full spectrum of financial and operational services prior to becoming CFO and a permanent employee of Sutherland Produce. In addition to managing all ongoing accounting transactions, Cindy is responsible for all sales and financial reporting, for all shipping documentation, and for keeping the company’s grower certifications up to date.
She brings to Sutherland over 30 years of financial and operations experience helping small and rapid-growth companies with all aspects of accounting, financial reporting, tax planning, insurance, office management, staff training and client relations. Prior to starting her financial services business in 1998, Cindy was the controller of a San Diego construction firm and before that as an executive assistant and bookkeeper for a landscape architectural firm.
Cindy attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where she studied accounting and civil engineering. When she is not busy keeping Sutherland’s produce delivering fresh to its customers, chances are you’ll find her heading to the golf course in her convertible Shelby GT Mustang.
