Meet Kari Mainelli

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (October 4, 2013) – Kari Mainelli joined Sabal Trust as Chief Financial Officer in 2009, after from a long career in public accounting. Stepping into her new role, Kari delved into the challenge of learning all she could about the compliance and regulatory environment of trust companies. Kari appreciates the ability to budget and project for future opportunities for a successful company, rather than always looking back at historical data in an audit capacity. She also enjoys contributing to the strategic decision making for the company by providing reports and analyses to the management team. As CFO, Kari is charged with ensuring the efficiency of the accounting department, including taking on administrative and compliance tasks that allow relationship managers to devote more time to servicing clients. Becoming principal in 2012, Kari is committed to her career at Sabal Trust and values the opportunity to work in a positive environment with intelligent, highly-motivated individuals with high integrity whose primary focus is to provide the best service to clients.
