Fortune Brands Names New Senior Vice President and CFOJune 26th, 2017 by Editor
Fortune Brands Home & Security Inc., the parent company of Therma-Tru Doors and Master Lock security products, has appointed Patrick Hallinan senior vice president and chief financial officer.
The company’s current senior vice president and chief financial officer, Lee Wyatt, has been named executive vice president and will retire at the end of 2017, as previously announced. Both positions are effective July 1, 2017.
“Over the last six years with Lee’s leadership, we established a strong company-wide finance team and strong management procedures in all areas of finance,” said CEO Chris Klein. “With strong processes and leadership in place, and a transition plan that has gone very well, we’ve accelerated Pat’s move into the CFO role. Pat is deeply familiar with our strategy and business, having held senior finance roles at our two largest segments: Cabinets and Plumbing. He is a proven leader who understands our performance-driven culture focused on maximizing shareholder value.”
In January 2017, Hallinan assumed the position of senior vice president of finance in order to begin the transition to the CFO role. For the previous three years, he served as chief financial officer of the plumbing segment. He previously served as vice president of finance at Beam Inc. and as vice president of finance at the cabinets segment for three years. Hallinan began his career as a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton.
