Lowe’s promotes finance executive

Mooresville-based Lowe’s has promoted Tiffany Mason to senior vice president of corporate finance and treasurer.

In her new role, Mason will be responsible for financial planning and analysis, and will continue her investor relations and treasury functions, Lowe’s said in a statement this week.

Mason -- formerly a vice president of finance and a treasurer -- will continue to report to Lowe’s Chief Financial Officer Robert Hull.

Mason has almost 20 years of experience in accounting and corporate finance, Lowe’s said, and has been with the company since 2006. She has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Loyola University Maryland and is a certified public accountant.

“Tiffany will play an even larger part in shaping our long-term financial strategy as we continue to look for ways to profitably grow as an omni-channel home improvement company,” Hull said in the statement.

Lowe’s, the second-largest home improvement retailer in the U.S., operated 1,843 stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico as of May 1. The company expects to open 15 to 20 home improvement and hardware stores this year.
