NEW LENOX, IL — Trinity Services, Inc. is pleased to announce that Bob Taylor has joined its leadership team as the organization’s chief financial officer.
Taylor brings more than 20 years of financial leadership experience and a strong commitment to the well-being of people with disabilities to his role at Trinity. He previously served as the chief financial officer of a creative agency, an educational publishing company and a global communications agency, all based in Chicago.
He is a certified public accountant and has an accounting degree from the University of Minnesota.
In addition to his strong financial background, Taylor has volunteered for social service organizations including Young Life and the Center for Economic Progress, and has served as a coach at Sabre Hockey Association and Chicago Blackhawks Special Hockey. He is father to a daughter who has Down syndrome.
Taylor said he was drawn to work at Trinity because it offered him the opportunity to combine his professional skills with the values that drive his volunteerism.
Taylor said he has already run into people supported by Trinity who he previously coached in hockey. He said he is impressed by the services that Trinity offers to help people with disabilities be active members of their communities and would like to support all of the work the organization does.
Of his previous achievements, Taylor said he is proudest to see people he hired and worked with move into roles as controllers, CFOs and directors.
Taylor will resume the work of Mike Sieling, who served as Trinity’s CFO for 29 years, to ensure the organization has a strong financial base from which it can carry out its mission of helping people with developmental disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives.
Sieling retired in November. During his time with Trinity, he helped lead the organization through a large period of growth in services and ensured the organization remained fiscally sound through the Great Recession and through the ongoing workforce crisis that providers of developmental disability services are facing statewide due to low Medicaid reimbursement rates.
“I would like to continue to help Trinity be as successful as it has been in the past 68 years,” Taylor said. “I want to keep things moving in a positive direction and do what I can to help people do their jobs better.”
He added that he would like to maximize resources in order to improve the organization’s salaries.
“Bob has a strong professional background and personal values that closely align with the work we do at Trinity Services,” said Thane Dykstra, Ph.D., president and CEO of Trinity. “I am very pleased to welcome him to the Trinity team and look forward to the work we will be able to do together in the best interests of the people Trinity supports.”
Taylor can be reached at (815) 320-7190 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
