Mann to lead Verisk’s global finance organization as CFO

Verisk, the leading global data analytics provider located in Jersey City, announced Thursday that Elizabeth Mann has been named executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective Sept. 15.

The role of Verisk CFO was left vacant when Lee Shavel became CEO in May. David Grover, Verisk’s controller and chief accounting officer, has been serving as interim CFO.

As CFO, Mann will lead Verisk’s global finance organization, which includes accounting and controllership, financial planning and analysis, investor relations, strategic sourcing and procurement, tax and treasury.

“We’re excited to welcome Elizabeth to Verisk. Elizabeth’s global and multifaceted finance experience, coupled with her leadership, make her the perfect candidate to lead Verisk’s dynamic finance team,” Lee Shavel, CEO of Verisk, stated. “Elizabeth will be a great partner in achieving our longer-term growth and return objectives and an invaluable resource for valued stakeholders who want to better understand Verisk’s financial and competitive strengths.”

An accomplished financial leader, Mann comes to Verisk from S&P Global, where she was chief financial officer for the Ratings and Mobility divisions, and, prior to that, senior vice president of capital management. She also held roles of increasing responsibility at Goldman Sachs.

“Verisk occupies a unique position as a trusted partner to the industries it serves. I’m looking forward to working with Lee and the leadership team to expand on Verisk’s position and accelerate the company’s strong financial performance and strategy for growth,” Mann said.
