Lois Martin

CFO and executive vice president
Ceridian Corp.

Martin joined Ceridian in 2012 after six years as CFO at Capella Education Co., where she guided the education firm’s emergence as a public company. She arrived at Ceridian—which offers back-office workforce management and services to businesses worldwide—with a reputation for superb financial management at several major Minnesota companies and extensive experience in creating spinoffs and publicly traded entities. How much of that background will be put to work at her new employer? It’s an intriguing question.
