RENO, Nev. (Feb. 20, 2018) — ITS Logistics announces that Jamie Lawson has been elevated to the role of Chief Financial Officer. Lawson started at the company in 2014 as Controller before being promoted to Director of Finance, and now to CFO and a position on the executive team.
“Jamie has been instrumental over the past 4 years helping build and develop a first-class accounting department,” says Dan Allen, former CFO and company co-founder. “Under her leadership, we have seen the development of great talent, improved service to our internal and external customers, and the utilization of some great new technology. Jamie has clearly demonstrated her ability to lead ITS in the top finance role.”
Lawson started out in the accounting field after completing her Accounting and Finance degree at Oklahoma Baptist University. She has worked in public accounting for CPA firms in Oklahoma, California and Nevada. Lawson first obtained her CPA license in California, and then in Nevada upon moving back to Reno in 2001. Collectively, she has spent more than 20 years in public accounting and private industry before joining ITS.
“I feel very fortunate to take over as CFO of such a great company like ITS Logistics,” says Lawson. “ITS has really been like a family to me with such an amazing culture. I’m excited to be a part of the astonishing growth we have experienced in the last several years, and look forward to supporting our continued success. It is also a privileged responsibility to be the first female executive with ITS. We are excited about our initiative to continue developing and promoting competent female leaders in a culture where diversity and inclusion of women is warranted and benefits companies worldwide.”
“I am very proud of Jamie for her work in our finance department,” says CEO Greg Sanders.” She has really proven that hard work pays off, and is a shining example of the opportunity for career growth at ITS. I look forward to seeing what she and her team can do in the future.”
When Lawson is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband of 25 years (a hospice chaplain), and with her two amazing children—her oldest of which is attending the University of Nevada, Reno while working in the accounting department at ITS. Lawson also has the great privilege to be the teaching leader for the Bible Study Fellowship Reno Evening Women’s class for the last 5 years.
