“In addition to her depth of expertise which speaks for itself, what really struck me about Heather was how much she aligns with our core values,” said Sean Charnock, CEO of Faction. “We challenge the status quo through innovation, and Heather has applied this thinking in her creation of unconventional campaigns that interlock marketing and business development in powerful new ways.”
Lauren Rosario is stepping into the position of Faction VP of Finance, Planning and Analysis after serving as the company’s Senior Director of Finance for four years. In her newly expanded role, Rosario will lead accounting, audit, cash management, revenue billing, capital and budget planning, debt/lease financing, purchasing and procurement activities.
