Chicago-based automotive classified site Cars.com has appointed a new chief financial officer.
Becky Sheehan joins the company after leaving her role as executive vice president and chief financial officer for FTD Companies Inc. of Downers Grove.
“In this next phase of our evolution, Cars.com is poised for expansion and revenue growth, and we’re excited to have Becky aboard as an experienced public company executive who will be a critical leader in our spin from TEGNA and beyond,” Alex Vetter, president and CEO of Cars.com, said in a company news release.
Sheehan has over 10 years of experience in organic expansion and acquisition. Under her leadership at FTD, the digital consumer company saw growth and doubled their revenues.
“She is a proven leader who understands our goal of becoming the leading decision engine that moves people through the car ownership lifecycle with transparent, fun and engaging experiences, and is passionate about building a business that will help us realize this mission,” Vetter said.
In addition to her leadership positions, Sheehan previously worked in public accounting — most recently as an audit partner with Deloitte LLP. Sheehan says she is excited to get to work with Vetter and the Cars.com team, in hopes of growing the company and enhancing her leadership position.
She received her degree in accounting from Illinois State University.
