Finance Department Promotions
After experiencing significant changes over the past several months, InVision’s Finance Department is glad to be back on track with greater stability and a new vision for the future.
When Shawn Ryan, InVision’s vice president of finance, joined InVision last December, he knew big changes in the department were likely.
“After evaluating the department, I wanted to create another leadership position, and I also wanted to promote internally,” Shawn said. He chose Melissa Leoni, a senior accountant at InVision, to assume the role of Controller.
Following nearly four years at InVision, Melissa has gained immeasurable knowledge about Finance’s processes and procedures. She also ensured Finance maintained stability as they experienced several staffing issues over the past year.
As Controller, Melissa will play a key role in the Finance Department, assisting Shawn in streamlining financial reporting and budgeting processes; promoting higher visibility for Finance within InVision; and continuing to provide excellent service in all areas of Finance.
“I’m excited to move into this new leadership role and look forward to using my experience in multiple areas of finance to help improve the department’s processes, as well as work toward fulfilling goals throughout [InVision],” Melissa said.
For Shawn, though, filling the Controller position was only half the battle. Moving to fully-staff the department, he also promoted two contractors, Charlotte Goebel—senior analyst for accounts payable—and John Popovich—billing reimbursement specialist—to full-time status after an extended evaluation period.
Charlotte and John perform essential functions for the department, and Shawn knew they each were the best fit for their job.
“Charlotte and John came to InVision in July 2019 and have quickly become assets to the team,” Melissa said. “We’re excited to have them on board with the Finance team, and [we] look forward to the improvements that can be made by utilizing their knowledge and skills.”
Please join us in congratulating Melissa, Charlotte, and John on their promotions. We look forward to their continued successes at InVision.
