Age: 39

Current job: Chief Financial Officer, Three Square

Education: Texas Christian University, Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Theater/TV; Southern Methodist University, MBA; Southern Methodist University, MA in Arts Administration/Nonprofit Management

About Andy Schuricht: As one of the youngest CFOs in the Southern Nevada nonprofit community, Andy Schuricht oversees and manages Three Square’s $11.5 million budget and has worked to cut costs and increase distribution of food to the community. In 2009, which was only the food bank’s second year of operation, it handed out 17 million pounds of food. Prior to joining Three Square, Schuricht oversaw finances for Springs Preserve during its first two years of operation. He was part of the Springs Preserve’s senior management team, and over a six-year period, saved it upwards of $5 million. Schuricht also serves on the United Way’s Financial Stability Partnership Council and enhances Las Vegas’ arts collaboration through his work with the Metro Arts Council of Southern Nevada and IMPACT. Prior to coming to Las Vegas, he was active in a community-wide small theater collaboration in Los Angeles called BCT (Big Cheap Theater).

The most important issue facing the valley: Today I feel the biggest issue facing Southern Nevada is unemployment. It exacerbates so many other problems including ones we should really have under control, like hunger.

My mentor and why: One of the benefits of working in the not-for-profit sector is the opportunity to work with and learn from a number of smart, dynamic leaders. Between board members and visionary executives, I’ve had several incredible mentors throughout my career – so I can’t possibly pick just one.
