Envision Unlimited Taps Bishal Maskey for Chief Financial Officer Role

Posted On by

Envision Unlimited, one of Illinois’ most prominent providers of programs and services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental illness, has selected seasoned financial management executive Bishal Maskey to fill the upcoming vacancy of its retiring Chief Financial Officer, Don Kraska.  

Maskey has more than two decades of financial management experience in strategic and operational leadership with large nonprofit organizations. During his 24 years with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), he advanced into progressively challenging roles and led the financial management team during the organization’s most recent restructuring.

“Bishal brings strategic thinking and a partnership mentality to this role,” observed Envision CEO Mark McHugh. “By all accounts, he achieves organizational goals by obtaining buy-in from stakeholders. In the nonprofit world, that is critical.”

“I enjoy aligning financial planning with the organization’s strategic priorities and operational outcomes,” Maskey said, noting that it generally leads to positive social impacts. “Transparency and accountability are extremely important to me, and so are achieving results through compassion and care,” he added.

Maskey immigrated to the United States from Nepal at the age of 20. He later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, in accounting and business management from the University of Maine and an MBA from Texas A&M University.

“His knowledge, experience, and especially passion for the mission will serve our organization well.” said McHugh.

Envision Unlimited retained KEES as its executive search partner earlier this year. They helped Envision leadership find a uniquely qualified candidate for the position who could best lead the organization’s quest to fulfill its long-term goals.

Maskey started in July.

KEES President and CEO, Heather Eddy, commented, “Bishal brought the perfect blend of experience, expertise and commitment to excellence that Envision Unlimited needs as we enter the post pandemic working environment. He will be an excellent leader as Mr. Kraska retires.”
