CIRED welcomes new financial and program coordinator

Terri Lashley

The CIRED team is pleased to welcome Terri Lashley as a new financial and program coordinator.

Lashley comes to CIRED with more than 20 years of experience in corporate finance and accounting roles.  Prior to joining CIRED, she worked for one of the world’s largest chemical companies. Lashley noted, “I started my career on an accounting team and worked my way up to a Controller position with responsibility for U.S. and Puerto Rico operations. Later, I was named the global leader for accounts receivables, covering a portfolio of approximately $2.6 billion.”

Lashley has extensive experience working internationally. “I had teams in Europe, the Pacific and North and South America and also partnered with our team in Saudi Arabia. My last position allowed me to travel to many places, to meet many people, and truly see the benefit of having a global perspective when solving problems. The skills I learned in these roles and the others that I have held have led to my current role as financial and program coordinator at CIRED. ”

In her new position, Lashley will be responsible for providing financial and operational support for departmental business and grant-sponsored projects as well as coordinating development and allocation of project budgets.
