Armstrong Flooring announced the appointment of Gregory D. Waina, as interim chief financial officer, effective June 29, 2020. Waina will have oversight of global finance, treasury, investor relations and accounting functions. The announcement comes after Armstrong Flooring and Douglas B. Bingham mutually agreed to separate effective June 26, 2020. The Company will engage a nationally recognized firm to undertake a comprehensive search to identify a permanent chief financial officer.
Waina has extensive public company experience and has served as interim CFO and advisor to numerous C-suite leadership teams, boards of directors and private equity firms on matters relating to operating strategies and financial initiatives. The Company says Waina has a proven record of successfully executing plans producing world-class productivity gains, and he has advised on multiple business transformation efforts at major brands, including The Wendy’s Company, Hillenbrand, Inc., Red Roof Inn, Inc., DSW Shoe Warehouse, and Express, Inc.
“Greg brings significant professional experience and we’re pleased to have him join us and work with our finance team and leadership at this important time of executive transition and the ongoing evolution of our Company,” said Michel S. Vermette, president and chief executive officer. “His broad financial and operational experience provides us with strong leadership and expertise as we continue to execute on our business transformation. I am confident he will provide great insight and perspective on our finance, strategy, and execution for growth as we work to identify and appoint a permanent CFO.”
Vermette continued, “We thank Doug for his contributions over his many years with Armstrong Flooring and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
These changes are not the result of any matters relating to the Company’s accounting practices or financial statements.
