The National Restaurant Association's Marvin Irby has been named the recipient of the Nonprofit CFO of the Year Award. The award will be presented at a luncheon on Jan. 31, 2013, and honors contributions to nonprofit leadership that impact the performance of an organization.

As CFO of the nearly $70 million organization serving the U.S. restaurant industry, Irby has shepherded the NRA through three successive years of growth, while ensuring long-term stability during a period of national economic unease.

"We are so gratified to see Marvin recognized as Nonprofit CFO of the Year for his leadership and extraordinary commitment to the success of our organization," said Dawn Sweeney, NRA president and CEO. "In my 30-plus years of association leadership, I cannot think of a more deserving individual. The National Restaurant Association is a better, stronger and more forward-facing organization today, thanks to Marvin's tireless efforts."

As a senior member of the NRA's Executive Team, Irby has guided the organization (comprised of a traditional trade association, a philanthropic foundation and a business service subsidiary) through a major property sale in Washington, D.C., in the past year.

In his three years with the Association, Irby has also revitalized the organizations' People Strategy, while improving the annual planning process to better align with the NRA's and National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) strategic plan. Under his direction, the NRA has implemented both short and long-term incentive plans for key executives and contemporized the performance management system, compensation structure and titling standards.

Additionally, he has implemented an enterprise-wide forecasting process that ties directly to organizational strategy, involving staff organization-wide. Most recently, Irby's responsibilities have been expanded to include oversight for Information Technology and Strategic Planning.
