We’re excited to announce that Kevin Windsor, MAM chief financial officer, is one of three 2021 CFO of the Year honorees in the nonprofit sector. In its 12th year, the awards program created by the Memphis Business Journal seeks to honor financial professionals in Memphis and the Mid-South for outstanding performance in their roles as corporate financial stewards. A group of independent individuals determines the winners based on outstanding performance for their organizations during the last three years as well as 2021 projection in the following categories: financial management, company leadership, strategic thinking, and contributions outside the organization.
Kevin joined the team at MAM in 2007 and has been an integral part of growing the organization over the years. MAM President & CEO Jonathan Torres says, “Kevin has dedicated himself to the mission of MAM because of his passion for every child to have a relationship with God and to have access to opportunities. He also deeply cares for the staff to counsel them with their own personal finances and investments. Kevin is a humble leader, a loyal confidant, and an amazing friend.”

With the operation of eight locations across Shelby County, Kevin Windsor knows he must stay on top of things as part of Memphis Athletic Ministries.
Since it was founded in 1998, the organization aims to coach, grow, and lead Memphis youth by helping them grow their relationship with Christ through athletics, academics, and mentoring.
As part of his duties, Windsor is responsible for managing the financial actions of Memphis Athletic Ministries, directing day-to-day administrative operations, human resources, and the collection, management, analysis, and storage of data across the organization.
Windsor said his favorite part of his position is getting to coach the staff on how to use data productively to impact the lives of the students.
How has COVID-19 changed the way you approach your job? With the COVID guidelines and mandates changing over the past 18 months, I have had to spend a larger share of my time on human resources policies and procedures than I normally would.
What will change in the next year? We hope to be back to our pre-COVID programming levels of 750 students a day and have full sports programming and leagues.
Biggest business strength: Our size and scope of reach. Other nonprofits regularly approach us for partnerships because we have many students who are able to benefit from their services. This allows us to offer our students some amazing opportunities.
Five-year plan: Over the next five years, we would like to add two new locations, create a summer community basketball league, and have a full year of funding in reserve.
