have demonstrated her ability to lead financial organizations through
transformative change,” said Julie Howard, Navigant’s Chief Executive Officer.
“She has a consistent record of success in enabling businesses to realize
enhanced long-term value creation, and her diverse experience provides a
strong strategic, financial and operational skill set to leverage at Navigant.
Cindy will play a critical role in the evolution of our strategy to Perform,
Bank and Innovate.”

At Navigant, Baier will have overall leadership responsibility for the
finance, investor relations and corporate development functions and will serve
