Rockwell Automation Thursday said it named Theodore D. Crandall interim chief financial officer following the resignation of CFO James Gelly.
Gelly, who resigned to pursue other opportunities, is expected to remain with the company’s finance function over the next several months in an advisory capacity, Rockwell said.
Crandall is the company's senior vice president and head of the Control Products & Solutions segment. He previously served in a broad range of senior operational and finance roles across the Rockwell, including vice president of finance and business planning for the company’s business unit that was the predecessor to what is now the Architecture and Software segment.
While Crandall serves as the company’s interim chief financial officer, Kenneth Champa will act as the interim head of the company’s Control Products & Solutions segment. Champa is currently vice president, finance for that segment.
