Celebrating Excellence: Justin Nickles Named One of Commercial Integrators’ 40 Influencers Under Forty in 2023

At PTG, we take immense pride in our team members’ achievements, and today, we are thrilled to celebrate, Justin Nickles, Vice President of Finance. Justin’s exceptional leadership and contributions have earned him a well-deserved place on Commercial Integrators’ prestigious list of 40 Influencers Under Forty in 2023.

Justin Nickles’ journey at PTG began in 2011 when he joined our company’s purchasing department. Over the years, he demonstrated unwavering commitment and an insatiable drive for excellence. It wasn’t long before he transitioned to our IT department, showcasing his adaptability and proficiency in diverse roles.

In 2019, Justin took on a new challenge as Director of Accounting, Purchasing, and Distribution and not long after became the Vice President of Finance in 2022, a role perfectly aligned with his skill set and academic background.

Justin’s journey to becoming Vice President of Finance has been marked by remarkable achievements. In 2021, he earned the prestigious Certified Management Accountant (CMA) certification, a testament to his dedication to professional growth.

However, it was during the challenging COVID-19 pandemic that Justin truly shone. His astute financial management skills came to the fore as he adeptly utilized government programs such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) to safeguard PTG’s stability and protect our valued workforce.

Under Justin’s financial stewardship, PTG has remained debt-free, showcasing his prudent financial management. Moreover, his strategic initiatives have propelled PTG’s Dunn & Bradstreet score to record highs, a testament to his unwavering commitment to our company’s success.

Bill Fons, President of PTG, had high praise for Justin, stating, “Justin’s dedication to PTG’s financial well-being and his innovative approach to navigating turbulent times have been instrumental in our continued success. He truly embodies the spirit of excellence and leadership.”

Deb Zupancic, Executive Vice President of PTG, added, “We are incredibly proud of Justin’s achievements and his well-deserved recognition by Commercial Integrator. His commitment to PTG’s mission have made a significant impact. Justin is always one step ahead and PTG would not be where we are today without him.”
