MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 8/22/2017 12:01 pm PDT -

Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU) announced its succession plan for Chief Financial Officer, Neil Williams who has served as CFO since January 2008 and plans to step down in January 2018.

Michelle Clatterbuck, Senior Vice President of Finance for Intuit’s Consumer Tax Group and acting finance leader for Intuit’s Small Business Group, will assume the role of Chief Financial Officer Feb. 1, 2018.

“Neil has decided to step away and embark on a new chapter, freeing him up from full-time employment to pursue other personal goals. We are fortunate to have benefited from Neil’s leadership for more than a decade,” said Brad Smith, Intuit’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Intuit’s financial foundation has never been stronger, our stock price is near an all-time high, our top-line growth is double digits, and our investment-grade rating is stronger than ever.”

“Neil has also built a deep bench of strong financial leaders that makes a seamless transition possible. Michelle is a talented professional whose experience and leadership make her a natural and excellent successor to Neil,” Smith said.

“Michelle has consistently delivered outstanding performance across multiple strategic leadership roles and business units over the past fourteen years,” said Smith.

In 2006, she rose to vice president of Finance for the Professional Tax business and went on to lead finance for Intuit’s Consumer Tax Group where she was promoted to senior vice president in a year when TurboTax Online gained unprecedented share. A strategic business leader and financial advisor, Michelle also has a strong track record of operational capabilities and building and leading successful organizations. Among her many achievements, she helped drive strong share increases and revenue growth over multiple tax seasons, led an effort to develop a strategic business case for tax replatforming and cloud migration, and championed Intuit’s initiative focused on developing the next generation of women leaders across finance.

“Given her proven track record in leading finance in our core businesses, combined with her strong operational capabilities, I’m confident in her ability to continue to advance our trajectory as a financially sound growth company. I’m excited to see Michelle lead opportunities to accelerate our performance in the years ahead,” said Smith.
