EVP, Finance and CFO
As Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Laurie and her team oversee all financial aspects of the co-op, including financial planning, analysis and reporting, administering member patronage dividends, and administration of Wendy’s supplier and distributor contracts. Prudent, transparent management of members’ funds ranks high among Laurie’s priorities. Most importantly, she is committed to instilling QSCC’s core values – integrity, process, transparency and member service – throughout the co-op’s financial processes.
Laurie started her career as an auditor with Ernst & Young, earning her Ohio CPA license during this time. She subsequently gained extensive financial management experience in the food service industry and served as Controller for the restaurant division of Bob Evans Farms and Damon's International restaurant company. She joined QSCC in 2011 as Senior Director and was later promoted to Vice President, Finance and Controller.
Laurie is grateful for having had the opportunity to observe and learn from organizational leaders who strongly believe that integrity, transparency and treating people with respect are as important as, and key to, delivering results – and continually demonstrate it through their actions.
Laurie is a graduate of Miami University. She enjoys spending time with her family traveling, riding bikes, walking her yellow Lab (Hattie), and supporting the Buckeyes, Blue Jackets and Browns.
