Member Spotlight

CAROLANN MARKER

Carolann Marker joined the local AGA St. Louis Chapter and has assumed responsibility as Treasurer for 2019-2020.  Carolann came to St. Louis as a transfer from the Washington, DC Chapter where she spent the past 25 years working for the Department of the Treasury (Treasury).  She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Economics from the University of Pittsburgh and is currently about mid-way through a Master’s program at Maryville University. 

Carolann’s long career began as a staff accountant in the Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP).  She often considered her time at Treasury as working for the biggest bank in the world in that she had the responsibility for managing the Accounting system for the Federal Government.  She would say that she definitely “grew up there” moving to a variety of entry level positions like Staff Accountant, Team Lead and Section Chief very early in her career.  As she progressed in her leadership journey and the political climate within our Nation’s Capital, she had the pleasure of receiving coaching and mentoring from a handful of outstanding leaders at Treasury. During her time working in the Federal Government, she also spent several months working for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and helped to prepare the President’s Budget.  She is pretty proud that as her name is listed in the report as a contributor!  It was that experience that helped her pursue a position in leadership. Prior to leaving the Treasury in 2015, she was promoted to Director with responsibility for the Central Accounting Reporting System (CARS), although most people know Carolann from her time working as the Director of the Customer Relationship Management Division.

Throughout Carolann’s 25 year career in the Federal Government, she has developed the ability to learn on the job and become a well-respected part of the government community. She also has raised two kids and recently celebrated 25 years of marriage to with her spouse.  She is excited to be able to bring her leadership experiences to the St. Louis AGA Chapter while helping to grow our membership here in St. Louis.  In 2016, Carolann’s and her husband sold their home in search of a simpler way of life away from the hustle and bustle of DC and they are now settled in St. Louis as “empty nesters” enjoying life in the Midwest.  Currently, working for the past four years at the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) continuing to support the Treasury Department’s core mission through system development
