Madeira USA Fills New Position of Director of Finance with Concord Resident
Laconia, NH - Madeira USA President Shirley Clark recently announced the appointment of Stephen Sacco to the
new position of Director of Finance. A resident of Concord, NH, Sacco graduated from SNHU with a degree in
Finance & Economics. Prior to joining Madeira, he worked with Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership (MBHP), a
highly respected non-profit organization responsible for connecting residents of Greater Boston with safe, affordable
homes. Prior to that experience, Sacco ran several UPS retail stores within the Manchester, NH area.
“We were drawn to Stephen’s ability to jump between retail and non-profit without missing a beat!” explains Madeira
President Shirley Clark. “We feel that he brings a high level of professionalism, knowledge, and the customer
service instincts that will make him a valuable player on the Madeira USA team. That mix of analytical thinking and
people awareness will prove to be an asset with customers and co-workers alike.”
As for Sacco, “On the job for only a few weeks, I’m concentrating right now on getting a better understanding of this
business, and learning the direction the president wants the company to take within the industry. I admit to being an
analytical thinker, but coming up with numbers that sit in a computer within a spreadsheet doesn’t do anyone much
good! I believe in making those findings available to the appropriate people, applying them in the correct context, in
order for my analysis to guide decisions that will have a long lasting effect on the success of the company.”
Madeira USA recently celebrated its 30th anniversary of having its U.S. headquarters based in Laconia, NH. Last
year, Business NH Magazine recognized Madeira USA as one of New Hampshire’s Top Women-Led Businesses,
under the leadership of President Shirley Clark.
