Posted on October 27, 2009
ALLEN, TX–(Marketwire – October 27, 2009) – Halo Group, Inc. (Halo), a nationwide consumer financial services company and a subsidiary of GVC Venture Corp. (OTCBB: GPAX), announced today that Chief Financial Officer Paul Williams is being honored as the recipient of the Dallas CFO of the Year Award. The award is judged and presented as a part of the Dallas Business Journal’s annual awards program. “I’m honored to receive this award, especially at this time,” stated Williams. “It’s true we’ve accomplished a lot in the past year, a lot of ground work has been laid, but we are just hitting our stride.”
Halo has established its position at the top of the consumer finance industry as a completely vertically integrated group of ten companies under one roof designed to assist consumers with their financial needs. Under Williams’ financial leadership during the last year, Halo has seen impressive growth and increased shareholder value at a rate of 252%. Halo’s strategy diversifies its business into two categories: origination, such as mortgage and residential real estate services; and mitigation, including debt settlement, credit repair and financial services.
“Paul’s mind for finance and keen understanding of what is required from an operational standpoint has been a great value to this company,” states Cade Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of Halo Group, Inc. Halo has in the past year added four subsidiaries and as a consequence of Halo’s recent merger with GVC Venture Corp., the company is now publicly traded. “Paul’s experience is evident; his leadership has been invaluable in making this happen as seamlessly as possible.”
Paul Williams has over 30 years of business experience primarily in the capital markets and mergers & acquisitions. Williams has served as the Chairman or CEO of numerous companies operating in various industries, both domestic and international, including one other publicly traded company. Mr. Williams experience goes beyond the boardroom and into the community. He served as the Chairman of the Board for the Frisco Chamber of Commerce in 2007 and still serves on the Board. He has also served on the boards of three other local and regional chambers and recently served two years on the advisory board of a local bank, as well.
Mr. Williams received the honor at a luncheon held Thursday, October 22nd at The InterContinental Hotel Dallas. The CFO of the Year finalists were selected for being among the most outstanding CFOs in North Texas. Candidates were considered for their contributions to their company’s growth and/or profitability, areas of corporate management in addition to the CFO role, as well as contributions to the community outside the company. Finalists and winners were selected by an independent judging panel consisting of past winners and recommended judges from ACG, the Dallas CPA Society, and FEI.
