CRISTA Ministries, located in the Hillwood neighborhood of Shoreline, has announced the appointment of Brian Kirkpatrick as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President.

Kirkpatrick, a finance veteran with more than 30 years of experience, will lead finance and information technology programs for the organization’s family of ministries that serve people throughout the world through education, international relief and development, senior living and media.

Kirkpatrick’s CRISTA tenure will begin on March 1. He succeeds Bill Brown, who is retiring after 38 years of service to CRISTA. Brown will stay with the organization in the short term to assist in the transition of the new CFO.

Kirkpatrick’s CFO duties include budgeting, accounting, financial reporting, compliance and analysis of asset acquisition. He will report to Bob Lonac, CRISTA President and Chief Executive Officer.

Kirkpatrick arrives at CRISTA from T-Mobile USA, where he had served as CFO and EVP since September 2001. Previous to his work at T-Mobile USA, Kirkpatrick spent 14 years with Ernst & Young LLP.

“I am delighted to begin a new challenge at CRISTA,” said Kirkpatrick. “As a Northwest native, I am familiar with the legacy of CRISTA and the immense impact of these ministries all over the world. I have been proud to be a CRISTA donor over the years, and will be equally proud to serve as CFO for the organization.”

Kirkpatrick currently serves as a member of the Board of Trustees for Whitworth University in Spokane, and is a member of the Global Business Advisory Board, Foster School of Business, at the University of Washington. Kirkpatrick has earned degrees from Washington State University (BA, 1977) and the University of Washington (MBA, 1982). He and his wife Nancy have three children.
