WASHINGTON – Nanette “Nan” Lawson has been named chief financial officer and treasurer of the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, as Mark Kim takes over as MSRB’s deputy executive director and chief operating officer.
Lawson, who has been at the board for more than five years and most recently as deputy financial officer and assistant treasurer, will oversee finance, accounting and administrative functions in her new post. Elizabeth “Beth” Wolfe, who has been MSRB CFO and treasurer since 2010, will continue to be the board’s chief risk 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. “Nan has the ideal combination of 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.”
Lawson previously served as vice president of finance and treasurer at the Public Broadcasting Service for 10 years. She began her career as an audit manager at KPMG. She has a BA in accounting from Texas A&M University.
Mark Kim, formerly CFO at the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority, joined the MSRB as its deputy chief executive director and chief operating officer earlier this week.
