This week's featured CBO, Mary Lou Merkt, is a seasoned higher ed veteran. She brings a wealth of experience across two other prestigious institutions to her current role as vice president for finance and administration at Furman University.
Today, Merkt joins Megan Strand to share her experience in strategically developing her team. She talks about the importance of recognition — especially through difficult decisions, those good for the university, but sometimes challenging for the team — and the role of trust in developing future leaders. Join us this week for a rich discussion around the transformative impact of the CBO, and growing the field for talented women finance leaders this week on CBO Speaks!
