JSU Alumna Felicia Neal Daniel Named CFO of Atlanta
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on September 24, 2021

Atlanta’s High Museum of Art has appointed Jackson State University alumna Felicia Neal Daniel as chief financial officer in Georgia. Daniel is responsible for the development of financial strategy, annual and long-term financial planning, and ongoing financial reporting and operations.

“I am delighted to join the High Museum of Art and am deeply honored to serve the community in this capacity,” Daniel said. “I am energized by the High’s people, its mission and its commitment to diversity and inclusion that is embedded in the organization’s core values as a museum with an international footprint. I am devoted to upholding the High’s legacy of nurturing a climate of fiscal sustainability.”

For the past eight years, Daniel held leadership positions with the city of Atlanta’s Department of Finance, serving as revenue director from 2013 to 2017 and chief revenue officer from 2017 to 2021. In that role, she spearheaded the city’s annual strategic revenue budgeting process, including the development of financial models to inform the mayor’s fiscal priorities.

Her other responsibilities included operational oversight, revenue forecasting and administration of revenue accounting, billing, collections, budgeting and cash operations. From 2009 to 2013, she was accounting manager for the Cobb County Tax Commissioner, and she held previous finance positions in the property management and travel/hospitality sectors.

Daniel is a Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) with the Association of Financial Professionals, a Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM, Association of Government Accountants) and a Certified Public Finance Officer (CPFO, Government Finance Officer Association).



She holds a certificate of public financial management from Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies – Center for State and Local Finance and was a member of Atlanta’s 2017-2018 cohort class of the KPMG Executive Leadership Institute for Women.

Daniel earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Kennesaw State University and a Bachelor of Business Administration/Accounting degree from JSU.
