Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
American Booksellers Association (ABA) is NOT happy to announce that ABA Chief Financial Officer (CFO) PK Sindwani will be retiring in August 2025. 

Sindwani joined ABA as CFO in November 2019 and was the first hire made by ABA’s then incoming CEO, Allison Hill.
As ABA CFO, Sindwani has been responsible for overseeing ABA’s financial actions, including budgeting and financial planning, cash flow management, payroll, accounts payable, and accounts receivable. 
As part of ABA’s C-Suite team that includes ABA CEO Allison Hill, ABA COO Joy Dallanegra-Sanger, and ABA CCO Ray Daniels, Sindwani has contributed valuable insight to ABA’s strategic planning and operations. 
Sindwani serves on ABA’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council and has contributed to ABA’s financial education sessions as a consultant and a panelist. He has been a driving force in increasing participation in ABACUS, ABA’s free financial benchmarking report for members.  
Prior to working at ABA, Sindwani was a bookseller. He owned and operated Towne Book Center and Wine Bar. During his 29 years in business, he expanded three times and had two stores for a while. Before becoming a bookseller, Sindwani was an accountant and spent 11 years in the corporate world.
Hill has said about Sindwani’s departure, “ABA has been so fortunate to have PK as our CFO. His combined experience as an accountant and as a bookseller has been invaluable to ABA and our members. And his contributions to ABA's culture; the diversity, equity and inclusion council; the ABA staff; ABA’s education; and ABA’s financial well-being have been significant and too many to count. We’re excited for him about his next chapter, but he will be greatly missed here at ABA.”
Sindwani noted, “This opportunity at ABA was a perfect fit for me. After spending 29 years as a bookseller, I couldn't have asked for a better conclusion to my career. This position allowed me to continue working with the finest professionals in the world and still make a difference in the industry I love. I hope to continue this journey in some capacity. I believe in the mission of ABA and would love to help out in any way I can.”
ABA hopes to hire a new CFO by June 2025 to train with Sindwani before his departure. The job is posted on BookWeb.
