Patrick Industries launches CFO search
Elkhart-based Patrick Industries (Nasdaq: PATK) says Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Finance Jake Petkovich will step down next month after accepting a senior leadership position with another company. The board of directors has named Matthew Filer interim CFO, effective upon Petkovich’s departure in May.
The company says it is launching a formal search process, which will include internal and external candidates.
Petkovich has served as CFO since November 2020. The company says he will remain in the position to help with the transition.
“His dedication, leadership and financial acumen made a significant and lasting impact on the entire organization,” said Patrick Industries CEO Andy Nemeth. “During his time at Patrick, Jake was instrumental in further strengthening our finance and accounting infrastructure, driving efficiencies through process improvement, supporting our capital allocation strategy, and developing and leading a strong and talented team aligned with our overall strategic growth plan.”
Filer joined the company last November as senior vice president of finance. Patrick says Filer has worked in multiple manufacturing industries, including rail, mining, and defense.
Patrick Industries is a manufacturer of a variety of components for the RV, marine, and manufactured housing industries.
