This week, we welcomed Holly Mattera to Cambridge Systematics (CS) as our new Chief Financial Officer. “Holly brings a focus on customer service and relationship building, has very strong communication skills, and has extensive experience helping organizations achieve their growth objectives and leading finance functions and accounting teams,” says Brad Wright, President and CEO. “I’m looking forward to partnering with her and leveraging her experiences to move CS forward.”

Meet Our New Chief Financial Officer

Holly brings over 15 years of experience in financial planning and analysis, forecasting, business analysis, financial modeling, pricing, contract management, and contract compliance. Prior to joining CS, Holly served as the Director of Finance with Beth Israel Lahey Health where she led the Finance team for the Pharmacy company overseeing the Accounting, Revenue Cycle, and Financial Planning & Analysis teams. She also has experience working in the public consulting sector, previously working as the Director of Finance at Public Consulting Group. Outside of work, Holly is a lover of fitness—you can often find her running, on her Peloton, or taking yoga and barre classes. When not working or working out, she volunteers for a local animal rescue and enjoys spending time with her husband, young daughter, and rescue pup Bella. Welcome to CS, Holly!

As we welcome Holly Mattera, we’re also extending our deepest gratitude to Karen Nocito, our Chief Financial Officer since 2015, who will be transitioning into retirement after supporting this transition in leadership.  “Karen has been a significant contributor to CS over the last 20-plus years, serving for over 10 years as CS’ Controller and then being promoted to the role of CFO," says Brad Wright. "Karen oversaw a number of changes in our Accounting department, played an integral role in helping us to navigate the pandemic, and has worked tirelessly to support internal and external customers.  She has built many life-long relationships and we are greatly appreciative of her contributions.  All of us wish her well in retirement."
