Longtime Borsheims Chief Financial Officer, Erin Limas, is set to retire at the end of March after nearly 35 years of service.
Erin began her career at Borsheims in 1987 as an accountant and earned various promotions before being named Chief Financial Officer in 1996. As CFO, she directed the company’s financial plan and oversaw the Accounting, Ecommerce, Marketing, Technology and Security teams.
Erin has been a driving force behind many of the company’s most significant growth projects, including implementing the store’s first retail management system, launching the Borsheims website, and, most recently, selecting a new software system for the organization.
Erin is highly regarded for her enthusiasm, insight, humor and willingness to help. In 2018, she was honored with the prestigious Ike It Award, named for longtime Borsheims owner Ike Friedman which recognizes an employee who exemplifies Ike’s legacy of customer service, commitment, hard work, loyalty, and dedication.
Borsheims President and CEO, Karen Goracke, praised Erin’s many contributions, “Over the past 35 years, Erin has been instrumental in shaping the success of our company. She’s been a trusted advisor to me, and her passion and dedication to Borsheims is something I will always hold dear to my heart.”
In retirement, Erin is looking forward to spending time with her family, traveling, reading, gardening, cooking, and of course, cheering for her beloved Chicago Cubs.
Borsheims sends its heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to Erin on her retirement. We cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for Borsheims—we know we would not be the business we are today without her passion, leadership and expertise over the last 35 years. We are indebted to her vision and commitment for propelling us to our present position in the industry.
