Caliber – The Wealth Development Company today announced Jade Leung as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), reporting to Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Chris Loeffler. A seasoned executive with diverse finance and operational experience within domestic and international growth companies, Mr. Leung, who previously served as Caliber’s Vice President of Finance, assumes his new role on Caliber’s leadership team and will be responsible for corporate financial planning, reporting, operational analysis and optimization, and treasury/risk management across Caliber’s five business units: Investment, Construction & Development, Property Management, Brokerage and Hospitality. The appointment follows Caliber’s corporate succession plan set in 2015 for Mr. Leung to assume responsibilities from Mr. Leland Harty, who remains tightly aligned with the Company by joining its Strategic Advisory Board.
Prior to joining Caliber, Mr. Leung served in several management roles during his fourteen-year tenure with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the international financial services firm, where he led audit and accounting advisory engagements for some of the firm’s top 50 global public and private companies. During that time, he managed domestic and foreign Initial and Secondary Public Offerings helping companies raise over $2 Billion in capital and debt.
According to Loeffler, “With Jade leading the financial strength, governance and transparency, we are well-positioned to bolster both our short and long term goals of greater efficiencies, profitability and growth, particularly as we continue down the strategic path and pursuit of a public offering.”
Since joining Caliber in 2015, Mr. Leung, a Certified Public Accountant, has led the execution and oversight of Caliber’s new financial reporting infrastructure, managed the lengthy external audit process and implemented best practices instrumental for achieving the company’s strategic growth plan.
