LRES has named Don Mask, formerly LRES’ chief financial officer (CFO), as chief administration officer (CAO). As CAO and chairman, Mask is responsible for developing short and long-term strategic goals; overseeing human resources, marketing, client relations and facilities departments; establishing board governance; and managing the company’s business investments.
“My 13-year tenure at LRES has been highly rewarding. I look forward to the new opportunities ahead as it relates to both the overall future direction of the company and specifically to my new role of overseeing company departments and investments,” said Mask.
Prior to joining LRES, Mask held executive level positions at several national companies that provide services for universities, where he was charged with raising millions of dollars in equity, directing facility renovations and leading multi-year union contract negotiations, among other fundraising tasks within academia.
“Don’s proven success handling the financial planning for LRES makes him the ideal candidate for his new role of managing corporate investments and establishing strategic planning and business analytics across department lines,” said Roger Beane, CEO of LRES.
