As SVP, Finance, Bak­er will report to DMG’s chief finan­cial offi­cer and will have func­tion­al respon­si­bil­i­ty in account­ing, trea­sury and tax mat­ters, as well as work close­ly with the com­pa­ny’s finan­cial plan­ning and analy­sis team. In addi­tion to her core respon­si­bil­i­ties, Bak­er will work with DMG’s stake­hold­ers, staff and its busi­ness part­ners, where she will take the lead in long-term strate­gic finan­cial plan­ning and report­ing annu­al plans, quar­ter­ly fore­casts and peri­od­ic reviews.

As DMG con­tin­ues its future devel­op­ment, our SVP, Finance is a key lead­er­ship role,” said DMG CFO Mike Pacetti. I look for­ward to work­ing close­ly with Kel­ly as she helps to proac­tive­ly dri­ve our orga­ni­za­tion­al growth and to ele­vate the finance func­tion of our business.”

Pri­or to join­ing DMG, Kel­ly was most recent­ly SVP, Finance at Phar­ma­cy Ben­e­fits Man­age­ment com­pa­ny, Optum­Rx.
