In this newly created role for Centri, Kristen is responsible for overseeing the strategy and processes related to building and retaining an exceptional team of professionals.  The role is centered upon driving growth and facilitating change for the company through a focus on its people.  The CPO position will compliment her CFO responsibilities which include overseeing the on-boarding program for new team members, talent retention including Centri’s Mentor Program and benefits management, and various other team engagement projects.

Kristen started at Centri in March 2015 as Controller, later taking on the role of Director of Human Resources.  In 2018, Kristen was promoted to Chief Financial Officer, responsible for managing all of Centri’s finance and administrative functions to ensure reliable and accurate financial data is provided on a timely basis.

Managing Partner Michael Aiello stated “I am very excited to announce the promotion of Kristen Wik to CPO. Kristen is a key member of our team and has been instrumental to the firm’s success.  She has already made significant contributions to the firm as the CFO and now she will certainly continue to add significant value as our CPO.  Kristen is a role model and mentor to our team, and I am extremely proud to formally add CPO to her title.”

Prior to her time with Centri, Kristen was a Senior Manager with Baker Tilley Virchow Krause, LLP (formally, ParenteBeard LLC) for over 7 years.
