Bob Kahler, Chief Financial Officer at CBE Companies (CBE), received the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier's Top Finance Leadership Award this spring. CBE employees joined key members of the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier to congratulate Kahler at a recent award ceremony.

The award recognizes top financial officers for innovation and business and organizational leadership. The Courier annually recognizes the best of the best in finance leaders in CBE's home community.

Tom Penaluna, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at CBE, nominated Kahler for the award because of his leadership, work ethic and commitment to excellence.

"Mr. Kahler is one of those individuals who helps maintain stability in our community by not asking for any acknowledgement of his efforts but always maintains a work ethic that is unparalleled in the workforce and through his civic duties," Penaluna said, "He is here at CBE day in and day out before others arrive to the office and many days is the last to leave and many times is found working on the weekends. Bob is one of those unsung heroes who maintains stability by his unrelenting work effort and high integrity."

Kahler joined CBE in 1998 after more than 16 years in the banking industry. He oversees the company's finance department and serves as treasurer for the corporation.

The Courier identifies top finance leaders based on leadership in their company's financial success, employee retention skills and innovative methods to maintain overall health of their organizations.
