South Shore CVA Staff

Cathy Svetanoff

Chief Financial Officer


Cathy Svetanoff

As a native of Northwest Indiana, I am excited about working for an organization that promotes the beauty and attractions of the South Shore.  From the importance of making steel to the beauty of the Indiana Dunes, I am happy to call Northwest Indiana my home.

At the South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority, I serve as the chief financial officer and maintain the fiscal integrity of the organization.  My career began in higher education at Valparaiso University where I worked in all aspects of fundraising, from annual gifts to principal gift fundraising.  With additional education and work experiences, I transitioned into the field of accounting and most recently worked at Ivy Tech Community College Northwest.

I currently reside in Crown Point, Indiana with my husband, Joe, and two children - Alexander and Natalia.  Both kids are actively involved in sports and we spend lots of time on the baseball and soccer fields.
