New CFO Joins Community Health Programs
Posted: May 9, 2017
We are pleased to announce a new chief financial officer at CHP, Thomas P. Walbridge, who will oversee our health network’s budget, financial operations and planning.
Tom has served as chief financial officer and vice president for the Kinsley Group Inc. and as CFO for the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority; he was also director of finance and human resources at Six Flags New England. His early professional career was spent in the banking sector in the Pittsfield area. He holds a business degree from Babson College and an MBA from Western New England University.
“Tom’s background in executive-level financial management, human resources and business operations suits us perfectly for the CFO position of our growing health network,” said Lia Spiliotes, CHP’s CEO. “We look forward to working with him and welcome him to the CHP team.”
CHP finished its 2016 fiscal year with an operating surplus of nearly $700,000, on revenues of $14 million. During that year, CHP increased its patient and client numbers from 16,000 to more than 22,000, with the addition of two new practices in North Adams and other new patient outreach. During 2016, employment at CHP grew from 140 to 175 and continues to expand.
Tom is a volunteer in his hometown of Longmeadow with youth sports programs, the American Red Cross, March of Dimes, Agawam Chamber of Commerce and Agawam Rotary. He is a marathon runner as well. He and his wife and three children live in Longmeadow.
As an outgrowth of his youth sports involvement, Tom is also the founder and operator of LuckBridge Sports LLC, a company that creates affordable, inclusive team-building opportunities for youth and coaches in the developmental and advanced instruction of baseball and basketball.
