Following the appointment of its new president and CEO earlier this month, aerospace supply chain management services provider Wesco Aircraft named its new executive vice president and chief financial officer on Friday, naming Richard J. Weller for the positions. The appointment is effective May 4.
Weller succeeds Gregory A. Hann, who retired on March 31. K. Lynn Mackison, who is serving as acting CFO in the interim period, will continue as vice president and global controller, a position she has held with the company since January 2015.
Randy Snyder, chairman of the board, said, “We are very excited to welcome Rick to Wesco Aircraft. He brings extensive corporate and division-level finance and accounting experience to Wesco, with long-standing tenure at major publicly traded companies."
Weller's background includes senior financial roles at Ingersoll-Rand, where he served as corporate controller and CFO for a $2 billion revenue sector. Rick also held significant leadership positions at Textron, where he had experience working with some of Wesco’s largest customers and suppliers as the global finance leader and the general manager of North America for Textron Fastening Systems.
“I am looking forward to joining Wesco Aircraft," Weller said. "I plan to bring a disciplined approach to our finance organization, working with President and CEO Dave Castagnola and the rest of the Wesco management team to instill greater rigor in financial processes, planning and analysis as we complete the integration of Haas Group and drive more efficient operations.”
