MSRB NAMES NANETTE LAWSON CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
Washington, DC – The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) announced today that Nanette (Nan) Lawson has been named Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Treasurer, an organizational change that coincides with the arrival of Mark T. Kim as MSRB Deputy Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer.
“With Mark assuming responsibility for managing internal operations of the MSRB, it is the appropriate time to make another change in support of my plan for our leadership structure,” said MSRB Executive Director Lynnette Kelly.
Ms. Lawson, who most recently served as the MSRB’s Deputy Chief Financial Officer and Assistant Treasurer, assumes the role of CFO, responsible for oversight of finance, accounting and administrative services functions. Elizabeth (Beth) Wolfe, who has served as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Risk Officer since 2010, will maintain her responsibilities as Chief Risk Officer.
“Nan has the ideal combination of financial acumen and strategic thinking to support our long-term goals and we are pleased to have a seamless transition from Beth’s leadership to Nan,” Kelly said.
Ms. Lawson has more than 25 years of financial management, budget and auditing experience, including the past five years at the MSRB where she most recently served as Deputy Chief Financial Officer and Assistant Treasurer, driving budget development and management of investments. Previously, Ms. Lawson was vice president of finance and treasurer at the Public Broadcasting Service for 10 years. She began her career in public accounting at KPMG, where she ultimately served as an audit manager.
Ms. Lawson received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Texas A&M University.
