The Executive VP and CFO of Pitney Bowes Inc., a global mail and shipping company that provides technology, logistics and financial services to small and medium-sized businesses, large enterprises, retailers and government customers, has more than 25 years of experience in finance and operations.
On her LinkedIn profile, Chadwick highlights her time as CFO of GE Capital Bank in Switzerland, where she helped lead the complete rebuild of a stagnant finance organization.
Chadwick, who has a bachelor's degree in economics and business administration from the American University in Washington D.C., led the transformation of "a slow business, and a staff that accepted the status quo, into a competitive player in a highly resilient market," positioning the finance team as the axis of an accelerated growth strategy in international markets.
Chadwick currently manages an organization of over 400 employees, leading financial, real estate, and purchasing operations. Prior to Pitney Bowes, Chadwick was with General Electric (GE) Company for 28 years with leadership roles at GE Capital, including Chairman and CEO of GE Capital Global Legacy Solutions, CFO and COO of GE Capital Global Legacy Solutions, Controller of GE Capital Americas, CFO of GE Capital Energy Financial Services, COO of GE Money Bank Latin America, CFO of GE Capital Consumer Finance Latin America, as well as other financial and audit functions at GE.
