Jennifer Scoffield will also be retiring from the CFO position effective Sept. 12. Scoffield worked with Atrium beginning on Sept. 2015, and was appointed CFO on Jan. 2018.
“She has been instrumental in building the finance and mortgage administration departments as Atrium grew its assets from $600 million to over $800 million today,” said Robert Goodall, CEO of Atrium.
“Jennifer was involved with me in all aspects of running the business, including successfully completing numerous common share and convertible debenture issues during her time with Atrium. The quality and accuracy of her work was impeccable, and she always had the full confidence and support of the board of directors. We shall all miss Jennifer’s presence at the company, and on behalf of the Atrium board I wish her all the best in this next chapter of her life.”
