Tom Reedy, who has served as CFO since 2010 and as executive vice president since 2012, will become executive vice president of finance. Mayor-Mora will continue to report to Reedy.
“We are excited to announce the promotion of Enrique Mayor-Mora to senior vice president and CFO,” said Bill Nash, president and CEO. “Enrique is a talented leader who has demonstrated a strong ability to build and lead teams while collaborating and communicating effectively with all stakeholders. We look forward to Enrique’s leadership as our new CFO as we continue to grow our business.”
Mayor-Mora, 51, has extensive experience in strategic and financial planning, treasury, expansion planning and analysis, risk management and investor relations. He joined CarMax in 2011 as vice president of finance and in 2016 moved into the treasurer role.
