Marking a great start to 2020, we are honored to congratulate RiverRock Real Estate Group CFO Ken Kruis on his nomination by Orange County Business Journal for CFO of the Year. OCBJ’s CFO of the Year awards are presented each year to area financial professionals for outstanding performance as corporate stewards for the preceding fiscal year.
Kruis joined RiverRock in 2005 just a few years after its founding. At that time he was one of 20 employees. Today RiverRock has 120 employees, a growth trajectory that he has played a significant role in achieving. With a successful track record of delivering accounting and financial solutions, Kruis is responsible for profitability, controlling costs and enhancing efficiency. In his position, he handles all corporate accounting, financial planning & analysis, and financial management for RiverRock as well as providing outsourced financial expertise to family office investors.
His role is critical to effective property management accounting. Industry-wide RiverRock’s accounting department and procedures, established in house by Kruis, are widely respected and sought-after by clients. He strives to ensure he sets the bar and to that end RiverRock is one of few firms that is hired at times solely to handle property accounting. RiverRock takes pride in the 100 percent favorable audit results of its accounting procedures, policies and controls.
“We are proud of the caliber of individuals that make up our team. Ken is part of the foundation here and sets the bar high for his role and how we work with our clients. I am proud of his commitment and this recognition,” said John Combs, founder, RiverRock Real Estate Group.
