Rotary International has named longtime pharmaceutical industry executive Lori O. Carlson as its new chief financial officer, beginning 3 October.
Carlson will oversee all aspects of the financial operations of Rotary International and its charitable arm, The Rotary Foundation, which have combined revenues exceeding US$400 million and almost $1 billion in assets. Her responsibilities include financial management, financial planning and analysis, treasury and investment, corporate reporting, accounting services, insurance, risk management, and procurement.
Carlson has nearly 30 years of combined experience in treasury, financial planning, and financial reporting and control, most of it with the pharmaceutical companies Hospira Inc., where she was corporate vice president and treasurer, and Abbott Laboratories, where she held several positions, including assistant treasurer and treasurer for international operations. She replaces Peter J. DeBerge, who was recently promoted to the position of deputy general secretary.
