Meet Lori

Lori HinesWelcome! I am so glad you’re here.

I started LHines Consulting because…(need content)

I recently left my position as Chief Financial Officer at Carlex Glass, a subsidiary of Central Glass Company of Japan. I have over 25 years of professional experience, including the last 8 years in senior level roles.

As CFO, I was responsible for the effectiveness and results of company-wide accounting and finance, strategic planning, management reporting and budgeting, capital planning, corporate tax, regulatory compliance and corporate risk management functions.

I also held the CFO position for a private equity owned business, Business Unit Controller for a significant business unit and Global Executive Director role managing over several hundred million in capital expenditures, both with a Fortune 200 company.

If you’re a fellow CFO, or senior executive, you know balancing all the expectations, dynamics, and evaluations can be challenging. And that’s why I’m here to help.

My experience spans a vast spectrum of business and financial aspects, including successful start up, turnaround, divestiture and integration activities. This means I bring a well informed, incredibly well rounded approach to our work together. Additionally, I hold a degree in Accounting and Marketing and is a Certified Management Accountant.  

I am former college athlete and continues to this day as an avid runner. I am devoted to both local and regional charity fundraising events.

I look forward to learning more about you,
