Beatrix Koev Joins CivicWell as Chief Financial Officer



April 8, 2024

CivicWell is pleased to introduce Beatrix Koev, MBA as our new Chief Financial Officer. With a decade of experience in financial executive roles, Ms. Koev brings substantial expertise in business consultancy, accounting, and financial controls.

Beatrix most recently served in an executive consulting role, servicing a diverse selection of clients who were interested in a root cause analytical approach to solve financial and other organizational challenges with a systems thinking holistic overview. Prior to this, Beatrix served as CFO for Sierra Health Foundation, a private philanthropy that forges new paths to promote health, racial equity, and racial justice in partnership with communities, organizations, and leaders. In that role, she was a catalyst for the foundation’s end-to-end operations, including accounting, technology, administrative, compliance, contracting, and financial reporting.

Previously, Ms. Koev was CFO for El Hogar Community Services—a nonprofit organization that provides mental health services to the diverse Sacramento community—where she streamlined the agency’s financial operations and created its strategic fiscal plan. She also served as CEO/CFO for Salt Lake City commercial construction company BEKO, growing the company to multimillion-dollar annual revenue and securing government commercial construction contracts as a certified WBE (Woman-owned and controlled Business Enterprise), and as Interim CFO for Big Texan, providing strategic leadership for its East Gateway construction development project and management of financial activities and departments.

CivicWell has been in a period of transformation, and we are excited to bring in Ms. Koev at this crucial moment. The CivicSpark AmeriCorps program is poised for expansion into new regions, our events are seeing record attendance, and Bernadette Austin has just completed her first year as CivicWell CEO.

Ms. Austin eagerly anticipates working with Ms. Koev, stating, “I am thrilled that Ms. Koev is joining our leadership team. She has extensive experience working with nonprofits, including the philanthropy sector. I was impressed with her understanding of the connection between the finance and program teams. In her interview she described how numbers are another language, and she can be a translator. She is going to be such an asset to our organization.”

Beatrix holds a Master in Business Administration from Louisiana Tech University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management and Architecture from Prescott College of Arizona. In addition to English, she speaks Hungarian, Bulgarian, and Russian.
