BEVERLY, Massachusetts (November 28, 2016) – The Nexxus Group® announces the addition of Bill Keating to its management team in the role of Chief Financial Officer.
Bill most recently served in the same capacity for Micropore, Inc. of Elkton, MD, a manufacturer of proprietary structured gas adsorbents and adsorbent systems. Bill provides Nexxus with a deep and varied background across a variety of industries.
After his position on the finance faculty at Bentley University, Bill Keating joined Polaroid Corporation in its corporate strategy group before moving into the controllership. He returned to Polaroid after a couple of stints in the ecommerce world at the outbreak of the dot-com era to help carve out Polaroid’s large Identification Systems business and integrate it into Digimarc, a publicly traded entity.
In 2005 Bill was part of a small team that raised capital and then carved out and capitalized much of Polaroid’s R&D group to form ZINK Imaging. As the senior finance officer at ZINK, Bill managed all accounting, operations and IT. He also purchased the domestic coating operations of Konica Minolta and integrated it into ZINK Imaging, moved the company from the Polaroid campus to an 80,000sf facility in Bedford, and helped raise more than $130m of all types of financial capital.
Bill said he was drawn to The Nexxus Group by the company’s “very interesting and potentially powerful business model, great team, [and] great leader.”
“As CFO, Bill brings a wealth of experience to the position and we are very fortunate that we were able to find someone of his caliber to fill this role. We have no doubt that Bill will play a key strategic and financial role in our continued growth,” said company CEO Mark Landgren.
Bill holds a BS in Finance and a PhD in Economics from Arizona State University and a CPA (MA). He and his wife Christy enjoy the New England Seacoast, especially Newburyport, MA and Portsmouth, NH, and plan to cruise the Caribbean next summer. He is a pretty decent golfer, is actively involved in the Special Needs community and enjoys reading. Bill and Christy have three adult daughters and reside in Bedford, MA.
