Lucas Group, the country’s premier executive recruiting firm, today announced the promotion of Margot Barabas. Barabas has advanced from Assistant Controller to Corporate Controller of the nationwide organization.

“Since Margot joined Lucas Group as Assistant Controller four years ago, she has diligently worked to streamline our systems and processes and to improve our reporting accuracy and timeliness,” said Bob Prather, CFO of Lucas Group. “Margot has been a valuable asset to our finance team, and we wish her continued success in her new role as Corporate Controller.”

Barabas began her accounting career in 2003 as an Accounts Payable Associate and has continuously advanced and grown in her profession, eventually leading her to Lucas Group in 2011. Since that time, she has implemented new policies and procedures as well as improved internal controls resulting in higher quality, faster reporting.
