Equifax expands board with former Workday CFO

Equifax has appointed former Workday chief financial officer Barbara Larson (pictured) to its board of directors.

Larson’s election expands the board to 10 members, including nine independent directors, according to the company’s Press release. Larson will also join the audit committee at Equifax.

Most recently, Larson served as CFO at Workday, a provider of human resources and financial management solutions. During her nearly 10-year tenure there, she held several leadership roles and helped the company consistently exceed financial guidance.

Her career spans over two decades in various senior financial roles at prominent tech companies such as VMWare, TIBCO, and Symantec. Larson holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Arizona.

Larson’s addition to the Equifax board comes as the mortgage tech company aims to grow its non-mortgage business, according to Equifax CEO Mark Begor.

“I’m energized to welcome Barbara as a new independent director on our board,” Begor said. “Her more than two decades of financial leadership and extensive experience in both human capital management and enterprise technology will be a tremendous asset to Equifax as we execute against our EFX2026 strategic priorities – continuing to grow our non-mortgage business through Equifax cloud-based new product and EFX.AI innovation.”

“Barbara is a strong business leader and seasoned finance professional,” added Mark Feidler, non-executive chairman of Equifax. “I am pleased to welcome her to the Equifax board of directors and am confident that her background will be invaluable to the board in its continued oversight of the company’s strategic growth.”

“The new Equifax has expanded well beyond a traditional credit bureau – growing into a leading global data, analytics and technology company,” Larson said. “I look forward to working with the board of directors to help guide the company’s strategic priorities as it continues its growth worldwide.”
