USA- Huntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI), an independent, nonprofit medical research organization in Southern California has welcomed Gabriel Rincon as chief financial officer and treasurer.

“We welcome Gabe as our new CFO and look forward to his contributions to HMRI’s mission of improving lives through patient-focused scientific research,” said Julia E. Bradsher, PhD, MBA, president and chief executive officer of HMRI.

Julia believes Gabe’s vast experience in different industries, in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, will play an important role as they continue to grow and explore new and uncharted methods of treatment.

Rincon has a proven track record in corporate finance, improving returns, and optimizing resource use. He has 17 years of executive experience.

He most recently served as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ global director of finance and accounting.

Prior to that, he managed all financial aspects, including analytical reviews, budgets, subcontracts, business law, and more while serving as controller at Kiewit, where he oversaw multi-million dollar federal, state, and local contracts.

“I am excited about the future of HMRI. I see how great HMRI is and has been for 70 years, contributing to medical breakthroughs like the use of laser therapy to destroy tumors. I plan to continue that legacy into the future,” Rincon said.

He plans to help double the organization’s size in the upcoming years so it can have an even greater impact on the scientific community and make life-saving discoveries that go beyond what is imaginable today.

Rincon seeks to increase revenue, decrease costs, and streamline systems and procedures to increase HMRI’s research capability.

HMRI research has contributed to the creation of diagnostics and medical equipment that have had a significant global patient impact since its inception in 1952.

The dedicated medical research institute in Pasadena has active research programs geared at conditions of the brain, heart, liver, and stomach.

With more than 47,000 square feet of research space, the physician-scientists at HMRI contribute their extensive clinical knowledge to basic research and clinical investigations, including ongoing studies on heart failure, hepatitis, and neurodegenerative illness.

Rincon seeks to increase revenue, decrease costs, and streamline systems and procedures to increase HMRI’s research capability.

He will oversee the organization’s accounting procedures, budgeting, and financial analysis, financial records and reporting, and regulatory compliance, among other duties.
