SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
HC Government Realty Trust, Inc. (“HCGRT”, www.hcgovtrust.com) today named Jason D. Post, CPA, CFE, as its new Vice President of Finance & Corporate Controller.
Bringing what we consider to be highly relevant expertise to his position, Mr. Post will be responsible for HCGRT’s financial management, including corporate accounting, regulatory and financial reporting, budgeting, as well as internal control policies, particularly as they relate to financial risk management. He will report to Edwin M. Stanton, HCGRT’s Co-founder, Director and CEO, and be based at the Company’s Sarasota, Florida headquarters.
“Jason joins us at an inflection point in our corporate evolution, as we seek to enhance our efforts with respect to our SEC-qualified Regulation A+ offering and significantly grow our asset base,” Stanton said. “Under his direction, Jason’s prior company used the Reg A exemption as it prepared for public status. That experience, along with his substantive expertise as both a financial officer at public companies and principal of his own consultancy providing accounting, SEC financial reporting services, and tax and litigation services should be of immediate benefit to our Company.”
Prior to joining HCGRT, Post was the Principal Financial Officer of As Seen On TV, Inc., a direct marketing company. Before that he operated Jason D. Post CPA, PA, a consulting firm offering financial and controller services for pre-IPO and listed companies. Previously he was CFO of Amacore Group, a marketer of health, life and dental insurance plans, and Zurvita, a distributor of health and wellness products. Post began his career in a series of roles of increasing responsibility at accounting firms Deloitte & Touche LLP, Cherry, Bekaert & Holland LLP, Cavanaugh & Company LLP, and Arthur Andersen LLP. He is a Certified Public Accountant as well as a Certified Fraud Examiner, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree, cum laude, from the University of South Florida.
“HCGRT’s value proposition of achieving stable, predictable returns from a growing portfolio of single tenant buildings leased to federal government agencies is compelling to me as a financial professional. I see significant upside, a strong management team and a clear vision and strategy to build the asset base and increase stakeholder value. I am thrilled to join the Company at this exciting time in its development. I look forward to applying my skills and experience to advance the Company’s investment, acquisition and financial goals,” Post said.
Coinciding with this announcement, Elizabeth L. Watson, CPA, who has served HCGRT as Chief Financial Officer, will be departing the Company. “Liz played an instrumental role in establishing HCGRT’s financial management infrastructure, for which we express our appreciation. All of us at HCGRT thank her and offer our best wishes as she moves on to the next opportunity,” Stanton said.
