ATLANTA - Gov. Nathan Deal has appointed a new chief financial officer and director of the Office of Planning and Budget.

Deal made the announcement Friday that Teresa MacCartney will fill the vacant position left by Debbie Dlugolenski Alford, who was named president and chief executive officer of the Georgia Lottery Cooperation.

MacCartney's appointment is effective immediately.

MacCartney started her career in the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget in 2001. She left in 2003 to work at the Georgia Student Finance Commission, then returned to the OPB in 2005 as the director of the education division and was promoted to deputy director in 2010.

MacCartney was the state leader for the Federal Stabilization and Education Jobs programs. She also served as the deputy superintendent for Race to the Top implementation.
