Mary Lubben joined Prevent Child Abuse America as Chief Financial Officer in September 2023. Previously she served as Director of Finance & Operations / Vicariate Finance Manager for the Archdiocese of Chicago; Chief Financial Officer at The Frances Xavier Warde School; and Executive Director and Head of Global Contracts & Documentation Management at JPMorgan Chase.

At the Archdiocese of Chicago, she built and implemented robust reporting and predictive tools, including profitability and cash flow forecasting models, for a $250 million portfolio of 150 schools and churches. Her work improved sustainability, ensured liquidity, and guided long-term financial planning throughout the archdiocese.

During her career at JPMorgan Chase, she held a succession of roles, among them Chief Financial and Administrative Officer for a multibillion-dollar commercial card business, where she revamped finance, risk, legal, and compliance infrastructure to facilitate expansion.

In addition to her work in the private and non-profit sectors, Mary has served for multiple terms as an elected representative to the local school councils (LSCs) for several Chicago public schools. In this role she has been part of diverse teams that have had a meaningful impact on children’s lives.

Mary is a lifelong advocate of child welfare, with much of her work with Chicago Public Schools focusing on improving student outcomes in schools with large, disadvantaged populations. She takes pride in her ability to implement rigorous financial and budgeting processes to successfully support those goals.

Mary resides in Chicago with her husband. They have three grown children and two tiny grandchildren, all of whom live much too far away.
