MINNEAPOLIS—(Nov. 19, 2015)—Entrust Datacard today announced that Kurt Ishaug, chief financial officer of Entrust Datacard, has been named CFO of the Year by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal in the large private company category. Since 2007 the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal CFO of the Year awards have recognized CFOs from across the Twin Cities based on their contributions to the company as well as the community.

Ishaug, who started his career with Entrust Datacard (then DataCard Corporation) in 2006, is recognized for his contributions that have ultimately helped Entrust Datacard grow its business profitably and expand into vertical markets by acquisition, innovation and strategic planning. In addition to his responsibilities on the financial side of the business, Kurt is also responsible for Entrust Datacard’s global legal and information technology teams.

“We congratulate Kurt on this well-deserved recognition,” said Todd Wilkinson, president and CEO at Entrust Datacard. “Since he began his career with Entrust Datacard, Kurt has been an integral part of the senior leadership team, working diligently to provide the company with strategic planning assistance, direction on company operational plans, and ensuring that we are meeting the financial goals set forth by our executive team. We couldn’t be happier that he is recognized amongst top CFO’s in Minneapolis.”

Recipients will be recognized during an awards luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 19. To learn more about Entrust Datacard, visit
