Laura Machanic serves as chief financial officer at New Target and is responsible for the overall financial management of the company. She oversees all financial and accounting processes and reporting as well as related corporate functions including human resources, benefits, insurance, internal auditing, and long-term financial planning. She brings more than 18 years of finance, sales, and operations experience to the position, after serving as the company’s CEO until January 2016, when she sold a majority interest in the company to New Target’s executive management team.

Laura co-founded New Target in 1998 with Rudi Ottina of Milan, Italy, and bought out Ottina in 2001. She grew the company into one of the Washington, D.C. area’s leading web development firms based on her vision of delivering the highest quality solutions and customer service experience to New Target’s clients.
