AmerisourceBergen appoints CFO
May 11th, 2012
VALLEY FORGE, Pa. – Tim Guttman has been named senior vice president and chief financial officer at AmerisourceBergen Corp. after serving in the post on an interim basis.
The pharmaceutical distributor said Friday that Guttman takes over the post full-time effective immediately and reports to Steven Collis, AmerisourceBergen president and chief executive officer.
Guttman was appointed acting chief financial officer in February, when AmerisourceBergen announced that executive vice president and CFO Michael DiCandilo left the company.
"I am very pleased to appoint Tim to his new role," Collis said in a statement. "Since he joined the company 10 years ago, he has demonstrated his ability to drive financial discipline throughout the organization, and he has been an important partner in driving our operating performance. He brings a thorough knowledge of our business as well as unique perspectives from other industries to our leadership team, and I am confident that he will continue to play a key role in our future success."
Guttman had served as vice president and corporate controller since joining AmerisourceBergen in 2002.
"I am excited to be taking this new role and to continue to help drive strong financial performance and deliver value to our shareholders," he stated. "We have tremendous opportunities ahead, driven by the growth areas of the markets we serve, and the unique services we provide to manufacturers and health care providers."
AmerisourceBergen said it plans to fill the corporate controller position internally.
