Benilde-St. Margaret's Natalie Ramier Named a 2019 Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal CFO of the Year!

Benilde-St. Margaret’s Chief Financial Officer, Natalie Ramier, has been named a 2019 CFO of The Year Honoree by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal for her outstanding financial leadership and contribution to BSM.

Natalie has served as BSM’s Chief Financial Officer for the past seven years, during which time she has redesigned the financial controls, introduced critical predictability models, led technology security initiatives, and helped successfully lead the school’s $8 million Imagine. Innovate. Inspire. capital campaign during the 2018-2019 school year. 

Thanks to Natalie’s guidance, knowledge, and expertise, three state-of-the art science classrooms and an amphitheater style performance and collaboration space opened up to Red Knight faculty, staff, and students ahead of schedule – just in time for the first day of the second semester in January of 2019. 

Upon receiving this recognition, Natalie stated, “I am very thankful to have been given this honor. I love being part of a faith-based community that educates and prepares students for the future. My own daughter is currently a beneficiary of the wonderful education here.” 

Natalie lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two children, and says she is proud to be part of the Red Knight community. “The things I have enjoyed most about my job have included managing construction projects for new innovative learning spaces and funding new opportunities for students,” she said. 

The Business Journal has been recognizing outstanding financial leaders at companies both large and small in the Twin Cities since 2007. Nominees for the award were assessed by a panel comprised of other financial executives who rated candidates on their contributions to their company and community. Natalie received her award in the Nonprofits category. 

“It is quite an honor given the scope of these awards and it deserves some celebrating,” BSM President Dr. Adam Ehrmantraut said. 

Congratulations, Natalie! We are thankful for and proud of all you have done for BSM.
