Laurie McGraw is speaking with Inspiring Woman Rebecca Marks, a Senior Finance Manager at Grainger headquartered in Chicago.

Becca has been at Grainger for nearly ten years in a variety of positions in Finance, currently as a Senior Finance Manager supporting Sales Operations. Her team’s responsibilities are to provide strategic financial decision support, insights, and key deliverables relating to pricing strategy, sales coverage, sales compensation, seller effectiveness, sourcing, and contract realization.

In her tenure at Grainger, she has consistently found ways to increase her responsibility and support impactful projects that drive positive business results. She has had the opportunity to work on several large-scale initiatives including reevaluating Grainger’s pricing strategy to increase relevancy in the market and rightsizing the brick and mortar segment of the business to align to changing customer demands.

She is actively involved in recruiting and development. Becca leads the Finance campus recruiting efforts at Indiana University and recently worked with Finance leadership to develop bench planning processes and finding ways to improve development conversations with team members.

She has a BS in Finance, Accounting, and International Business and a minor in French from the Indiana University, Kelley School of Business.
