Collaborates with various teams and personnel to ensure continued focus on timeliness and quality of balance sheet account reconciliations to drive improvements in the effectiveness of related control(s).

Manages revisions and updates to the Company’s financial close management task tracking tool, including key milestones and deadlines, to ensure Lumen's monthly accounting and reporting close remains on track.

Coordinates and supervises the Company’s quarterly review cycles for its accounting policy library and ensures any off-cycle review is conducted in a timely manner for any significant changes to existing accounting policies or changes triggered from accounting standard adoption.

Ensures appropriate organizations with the Company are consulted for accounting policy changes that may impact other functions or reporting (for example, tax, regulatory accounting, treasury or finance teams).
