TheFinancial Executives International Hall of Fame is a distinguished honor which annually recognizes highly respected financial executives for displaying exemplary performance, leadership and integrity.
Inductees were nominated by their peers and hand selected by a committee of financial professionals. Roub was chosen for his outstanding professional leadership and continual community involvement.

The other inductees include Fred A. Allardyce, Joan Lordi Amble, Barbara Hackman Franklin and P. Norman Roy.
This gala marks Financial Executives International Hall of Fame’s 10th year recognizing exceptional achievement in the finance profession.
“We are excited to join FEI and guests in congratulating this year’s honorees for their leadership and integrity throughout their careers, and in celebrating this significant 10 year milestone for our awards ceremony, which represents some of the most accomplished financial professionals,” said Taylor Hawes, Sr., GM, Corporate Finance and Services at Microsoft, and 2015 Chair of the FEI Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
Roub retired as Senior VP and CFO of Harris Corporation in 2006 after 22 years with the company.
Prior to his career at Harris, he served various roles at Midland-Ross Corporation, including assistant controller, controller, executive VP of Finance and CFO. Roub also served as a member of the audit staff of Ernst & Ernst.
Currently, he is a Board Director at Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. and Health First Health System. His service to Financial Executives International includes President of both the Northeast Ohio and Central Florida Chapters, and as its national Chairman.

‘This Community Is Very Giving, With Willing Hearts and Hands’
CENTRAL FLORIDA, USA – Most of the volunteer activities that consume Judy Roub’s time have one common denominator: Children.
She devoted her energy to raising her and husband Bryan’s three sons, but found she had more to give – and many kids who needed help. Among those who have benefited from her work are the residents of The Haven for Children.
The Haven is licensed by the state Department of Children and Families to provide therapeutic shelter in a homelike environment for neglected, abused or abandoned children.
The effort began as a project of the Junior League of South Brevard and started with one home in 1987. Gradually, two more homes were added. Today, the organization operates three homes, providing care for up to 35 children from birth to age 18.
“The staff is amazing,” Roub said. So are the volunteers. Seven days a week, volunteers provide a home-cooked meal for the children.
FOUNDING MEMBER OF HAVEN GUILD
Roub is a founding member of the Haven Guild, the fundraising arm of the Haven.
The guild, founded in 1990, supports the Haven through an evening dinner event once a year, as well as through the Lamb Shoppe thrift shop.
Operated completely by volunteers, the shop is located in Brevard County at 1765 S. Patrick Drive in Indian Harbour Beach. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
The Guild also throws an annual birthday party for the Haven. In the early years, people brought gifts. Today, cash donations come in that allow the organization to purchase what it needs.
The Haven has a special place in Roub’s heart for another reason: Two of her nine grandchildren were adopted from one of its homes.
Roub also has worked with the Brevard Zoo and has served on the board of AMIKids Space Coast, which helps youth from troubled pasts chart a course for their futures. Bryan Roub, a former Harris Corp. executive, also gives of his time, recently serving on the board of directors of The Women’s Center.
Beds at the Haven are always filled, with many requests for placement denied for lack of room.
But rather than be overwhelmed by the need, Judy Roub is grateful for those willing to help.
“There’s a lot of need out there,” she said. “But this community is very giving. It’s not hard to find willing hearts and hands.”
