"The Department of Education recently welcomed its newest chief financial officer, Lawrence Warder, who was recently confirmed by the Senate.
'I am so pleased to have Larry join my team here at the Department,' said Education Secretary Margaret Spellings. 'His vast experience and sterling reputation in the financial sector will help us account for every dollar received and invested by this Department. He will work to ensure that every dollar is spent wisely, in the best interest of students and taxpayers alike.'
Warder will serve as the principal advisor to Secretary Spellings on all matters related to discretionary grant-making, cooperative agreements and procurement and will be responsible for financial control and accounting at the Department.
Warder most recently served as global director at Deloitte Consulting, a company he has served since 1969. He has held senior management positions with DC in the London, New York, Dallas and Detroit offices. Prior to Deloitte, Warder served as supervisor for financial systems at General Tire and Rubber Company.
