About Your Host: Nick Katko, President, BMA The Lean Accounting Leaders

Nick is an early pioneer of Lean Accounting. In the 1990’s, as CFO of Bullard, Nick implemented a complete lean management accounting system in conjunction with Bullard’s Lean transformation, which included eliminating standard costing. Through this experience, Nick learned that existing management accounting systems and financial management practices for lean organizations must be made relevant to ensure the success of a lean strategy.

Nick joined BMA in 2002 and has leveraged his Lean Accounting experience and philosophy in assisting BMA clients in developing, leading and coaching them in their Lean Accounting transformations. Nick has also provided selected BMA clients with Lean Strategy and Lean Office guidance. Clients Nick has served range of organizations world-wide from family-owned businesses to multi-national companies in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, software, engineering and service.

Nick is a regular speaker at the annual Lean Accounting Summit and has also presented at conferences in the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia.
