Sonya Bachlmayr has been promoted to vice president of finance and strategy for APA – The Engineered Wood Association, a recognition unanimously supported and approved by the APA Board of Trustees.
The promotion recognizes that her responsibilities have expanded considerably beyond those of the director of finance and administrative services position for which she was hired.
In the new position, Bachlmayr will continue her role as secretary/treasurer, one of the association’s two officers. While the emphasis of the new position remains on finance, she will be tasked also with promoting the association’s increased organizational effectiveness and overall strategic goals.
“Sonya has proven to be both strategic and tactical in her thoughts and performance,” President Ed Elias said in announcing Bachlmayr’s promotion. “Recognition of that performance is being formally acknowledged.”
Bachlmayr previously served as APA’s accounting manager for six years. She returned to APA in 2013 to direct the Finance and Administrative Services Division.
