Honors & Awards
Woman Business Owner of the Year
"In 6 short years, The Energy CFO has evolved and diversified her business more than some companies have in 20 years. The ability to be so innovative is a great talent, and Paula will continue to rise and be even more successful than she is now", says Shirley Crandall, President of NAWBO San Antonio.
Paula Waggoner-Aguilar, CEO and Founder of The Energy CFO® (The Healthcare CFO's parent company and Managing CFO), is one of six San Antonio women who are recipients of the prestigious National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) 2019 Woman Business Owner Award. Paula founded The Energy CFO in the heart of the Eagle Ford back in 2013 at the apex of the Shale boom in South Texas. She is one of a very small number of women entrepreneurs (and female cfos) in the oil and gas business. She has overcome many obstacles, including navigating her firm through one of the worst energy sector downturns since the 1980s.
