Tingue Team Completes Course at Duke University

Tingue’s management team attended a week-long executive education program at Duke University’s, Fuqua School of Business earning a certificate in finance, according to a news release. The Duke program is designed to introduce participants to the essential elements of financial reporting, including managerial and financial accounting. Additional topics include, interpreting financial statements and developing capabilities to communicate operating, marketing, sales, and growth strategies in financial terms.

“Our management team has historically been strong in operations management and in sales management,” says David Tingue, CEO.  “As I look ahead, I believe our managers will best serve both Tingue, Brown & Co., and their customers if they combine this expertise with strong financial competence as well.  To that end, we turned to Duke University to help raise the financial understanding and aptitude of four of our company leaders: David Rovetto, Regional Sales Manager; Jamie Bridge, Regional Sales Manager; Chris Melchionni, Regional Sales Manager; and Patrick Robertson, VP of Operations.”

“It’s an exceptional course,” says Patrick Robertson. “Building from basics on day one, to real-world applications on the final day. The Duke program has allowed me to analyze financial statements and make impactful decisions backed by the data. A deeper understanding of company financials is critical for any leader, and this program has made me a much more competent decision-maker within our organization.”
