CSM Corporation Names Jim Stoffel as Chief Financial Officer Finance executive brings global experience to CSM’s diverse real estate portfolio

CSM Corporation has announced a key new addition to its executive team, naming Jim Stoffel as CFO. Stoffel will lead all of CSM’s finance, accounting and risk management activities. Overseeing a diverse portfolio of more than 10 million square feet of commercial/retail space and thousands of hotel rooms and residential units across 14 states, Stoffel will manage the company’s financial performance with a focus on process discipline, competitive analysis and metrics-based management strategies.

“Jim is more than a ‘finance guy’,” said CSM CEO Gary Holmes. “He’s a highly experienced and versatile business leader who understands all aspects of how successful companies are run. He will be a strong addition to our leadership team.”

“Gary and CSM are true market leaders in the commercial real estate and hospitality marketplace,” said Stoffel. “This is a great opportunity to join a high-performing team and help CSM continue to grow.”

Stoffel’s broad base of experience spans senior-level finance and operations positions in the manufacturing, retail and consumer goods industries. Beginning his career as an auditor at KPMG, Stoffel went on to lead the financial and treasury functions at Nordstrom, Best Buy and Supervalu. His business development experience includes facilitating major domestic and global acquisitions at Tennant that increased the company’s total revenue and profit by more than 30 percent.

Stoffel earned a double major in Finance and Accounting from the University of Wisconsin and is a licensed CPA (inactive). A father of five, he is an active volunteer in his community.
