Pamela Rothka Named WashingtonExec Top 10 CFO to Watch

Reston, VA – March 23, 2020 – Octo is pleased to announce Pamela Rothka, Chief Financial Officer, has been named one of WashingtonExec’s Top 10 CFOs to Watch, a recognition given to those in private companies who demonstrate putting long-term growth, strategy and profitability first and who have achieved significant accomplishments. Award recipients also have impact on internal financial and operational goals and hold vision for the future. Rothka, who joined Octo in 2019, manages finance, accounting, contracts, pricing, HR, and facilities. She serves a critical role in Octo’s strategic planning and analysis, capital financing, budgeting, rate design, mergers and acquisitions, and transformational change initiatives. Under her leadership, Octo experienced 65% year-over-year revenue growth in 2019, and through the acquisition of Connexta, integrated a 125-employee business. Since her arrival, Octo has also seen a spike in efficiencies in almost every area while growing as a scalable organization. Her tenure has included a redesign of the headquarters facility to modernize operations, as well as a redesign of Octo’s indirect rate structure that increased cost competitiveness. Rothka oversaw the strategic reorganization of HR by adding HR business partners and creating a top-talent program to identify and develop talent across the organization. She was also responsible for the implementation of a new financial system that, when fully operable this year, will streamline operations, speed time-to-close, and improve scalability of processes. “I am honored to be recognized by WashingtonExec for my contributions made to Octo,” Rothka said. “This type of accomplishment can only be achieved by working as one collaborative team across the company. I look forward to the efforts we will make to continue to impact the organization. I am proud to be a part of this hard-working team that encourages excellence at every level.”
