Each year, the WNY Chapter of HFMA (Healthcare Financial Management Association) recognizes a member who has provided outstanding service to the chapter.  This person is someone who goes above and beyond to ensure the chapter grows and thrives.

Last month, Christopher Eckert, a Senior Manager here at Freed Maxick in the Healthcare group, was named Member of the Year for 2011 – 2012.

Chris joined the Chapter in 2008 and has been the heart of the Chapter’s golf tournament for the past three years.  In addition, he serves as membership co-chair where he has signed up countless members.  He is also a board member of the Class of 2013.

On behalf of everyone at Freed Maxick, Congratulations to Chris on this outstanding achievement! Great work.
