OGDEN — The Richard Richards Institute for Ethics at Weber State University will recognize Andre Lortz, the chief financial officer for Maverik, as the winner of the institute’s Ethical Leadership Award.
The award will be presented at the Ogden-Weber Chamber of Commerce breakfast Thursday.
"The Richards Institute's Ethical Leadership Award was created to identify and recognize ethical leaders in our communities who often go unnoticed,” Nathan Clark, advisory board member for the institute, said in a statement. “The board is pleased to recognize Andre Lortz for his professional leadership as a chief financial officer and his extensive volunteer service on several boards and committees in the Ogden and surrounding areas, advancing education, technology and jobs."
Lortz joined Maverik as its CFO in 2014. He is responsible for the company’s financial reporting, data analytics, internal audit, loss prevention, planning and treasury functions. Prior to joining Maverik, Lortz was the CFO for FJ Management, Maverik’s parent company. He has also served as the CFO for Big West Oil.
Lortz graduated from WSU with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s in professional accounting. He currently serves on the university's alumni association board of directors and on the advisory board of the WSU School of Accounting.
