Equifax announced last week that former Workday chief financial officer Barbara Larson has been elected to its board of directors.

Equifax said Larson will serve on the board’s audit committee. With this appointment, the Equifax board now consists of 10 directors, including nine independent directors.

“I’m energized to welcome Barbara as a new independent director on our board,” Equifax CEO Mark Begor said in a news release. “Her more than two decades of financial leadership and extensive experience in both human capital management and enterprise technology will be a tremendous asset to Equifax as we execute against our EFX2026 strategic priorities — continuing to grow our non-mortgage business through Equifax Cloud-based new product and EFX.AI innovation.”

Larson most recently served as chief financial officer at Workday, a leading provider of solutions to help organizations manage their people and money.

Under her financial leadership, Equifax highlighted that the company consistently beat quarterly guidance and issued their first investment grade debt offering. During her nearly decade-long tenure with Workday, Larson held several leadership positions across the company’s finance and product organizations, including senior vice president of accounting, tax, and treasury, as well as general manager of Workday Financial Management.

“The new Equifax has expanded well beyond a traditional credit bureau — growing into a leading global data, analytics and technology company,” Larson said in the news release. “I look forward to working with the board of directors to help guide the company’s strategic priorities as it continues its growth worldwide.”

Prior to joining Workday, Larson held various leadership roles in corporate finance spanning more than 20 years at VMWare, TIBCO and Symantec.

Mark Feidler is the non-executive chairman of the Equifax board.

“Barbara is a strong business leader and seasoned finance professional,” Feidler said. “I am pleased to welcome her to the Equifax board of directors and am confident that her background will be invaluable to the board in its continued oversight of the company’s strategic growth.”
