Intevac, Inc. (NASDAQ:IVAC) today announced that Jeffrey S. Andreson, chief financial officer (CFO), has advised the company of his resignation, effective September 19, 2014, in order to become the CFO of a publicly-traded company in the semiconductor capital equipment industry.
In pursuing this new job opportunity, Mr. Andreson is returning to the semiconductor capital equipment industry, where he has spent the majority of his 30 years in finance. He will continue to direct the company's finance organization and assist in transition until his departure date.
Mr. Charles B. Eddy, who served as the company's CFO from its founding in 1991 until his retirement in 2007, will be interim CFO while the company conducts its search for a permanent successor. Mr. Eddy and Mr. Andreson have worked together previously, in 2007, to ensure a smooth transition of the finance team's leadership.
“We are grateful to Jeff for providing strong leadership of our finance organization over his many years at Intevac," commented Wendell Blonigan, Intevac's president and chief executive officer. "He has worked tirelessly to build a top-notch finance team and has been a key contributor to our strategic planning process, helping to put our company on the right trajectory for future growth and success. We wish him all the best."
"I'm gratified by the results of my work at Intevac over the last several years, building a strong financial organization and working closely with Wendell to develop a strategic plan for the future success of the company," commented Mr. Andreson. "I am grateful for the learning, experience and relationships I've enjoyed here at Intevac, and I'm confident in the company's outlook for future success."
