Lori Partington

Director, Finance

You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the end.

— C.S. Lewis

The Steadfast One

To borrow from Brigham Young, “honest hearts produce honest actions.” We can honestly say that Lori is a living example of this. She is by far one of the most trusty, steadfast, and reliable people we know. The center of our financial operations, Lori guides financial decisions and makes accounting allocations with utmost integrity. With her unwavering commitment and without fanfare, she has been doing so since our founder literally opened the doors to his office. 

As finance director, Lori oversees finance and accounting operations, supporting our growth path while mitigating risk. From maintaining healthy records, budgets, and controls to handling day-to-day transactions, Lori fulfills her responsibilities with integrity, commitment, and accuracy.

To her role, Lori brings over 25 years of expertise as a leader for finance, human resources, and administration. Prior to joining Acertitude, she was director of finance and administration with O’Neill Consulting, an Acertitude company. She spent her early career in office management, benefits, and human resources roles. 

Lori lives in her home state of Rhode Island with her family. To her, the best way to spend a quality day is with friends and family. That includes plenty of time on the nearby beaches, dog walks, bike rides, and any other way to enjoy the outdoors. Cozying up by their fire pit or pellet stove on a cold winter night also hits the top list.
