McClatchy Promotes Elaine Lintecum to Vice President, Finance and CFO

The McClatchy Company, a news and information provider, has promoted Elaine Lintecum to vice president, finance and chief financial officer (CFO). Lintecum has served as McClatchy’s treasurer since 2002 and spent the last 24 years in McClatchy’s corporate finance department holding a variety of key positions, including financial analyst, investor relations manager and assistant treasurer.

Lintecum was McClatchy’s financial reporting specialist for US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings. She will retain the duties of treasurer in her new position. She replaces Patrick Talamantes, who today becomes McClatchy’s president and chief executive officer (CEO).

She was promoted to investor relations manager in 1993, named assistant treasurer in 2000 and promoted to treasurer in 2002. She has played an instrumental role in every major financial development at McClatchy – from mergers and acquisitions (M&As)to debt repayment and restructuring – for more than two decades.

Lintecum earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from California State University, Chico in 1980 after serving two years in the US Army.
