This past July, ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. announced the promotion of Brian Turcotte to chief financial officer of American Home Shield (AHS), ahead of parent company Frontdoor, Inc.’s spin-off from ServiceMaster, which was completed as of October when it appeared as an independent on the NASDAQ. Turcotte had held many roles at ServiceMaster, including most recently as vice president of Investor Relations and treasurer, and was instrumental in its IPO in 2014.
Previously, Turcotte served as the business unit chief financial officer for AHS and the Franchise Services Group, as well as vice president of finance for the consolidated marketing organization. He came to ServiceMaster after six years at Office Depot, where he served as vice president, finance and investor relations, leading the shareholder communications effort, as well as having financial reporting responsibility for the company’s operations in Asia and Latin America. He also worked at Xylem Global Partners, a New York-based asset management firm, where he was vice president and equity analyst. Prior to that, Turcotte spent more than 25 years with International Paper holding a variety of leadership positions in investor relations, sales and marketing, global product development, and other functions at locations across the United States.
