Mr. Mark Seethaler


Managing payments for a truly global organization is a challenge that is met by operations, IT, and Treasury Services process ownership.  Technology and teams combine to refine processes, set and achieve efficiency goals, and proactively address the opportunities presented within today’s dynamic global environment.  Mark Seethaler serves as the Global Payments Manager for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – the LDS Church.  As such, he and his organization are responsible to serve the growing needs of this 15-million member organization with congregations in over 160 countries.  Constructing and maintaining meetinghouse facilities, managing a missionary program over 80,000 strong, and providing educational and humanitarian services (including disaster response to victims of earthquakes, famines, and violent storms) around the globe are challenges that require both faith and funding.

Mark graduated in Accounting from Bingham Young University where he served as a student body officer (ASBYU Finance), then worked with Deloitte Cincinnati, Ohio where he passed the CPA examinations.  He has worked as the Controller and Chief Financial Officer for both public and privately-held entities, including a 12-year stretch with Dayna Communications, serving as the CFO at the time Dayna was acquired by Intel Corporation in 1997.  He has instructed Accounting and Finance as an adjunct professor at Salt Lake Community College, and served as President of BioMeridian Corporation before joining the Finance Department of the LDS Church in 2002, earning his APM accreditation while previously managing AP operations. Mark serves as an elected member of the South Jordan City Council, and he and his wife Kristen are the parents of six children and, most importantly, grandparents to eight exceptional grandchildren.
