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.
