Thomas P. Crimmins, CFO of B&G Foods, has resigned, effective March 24.
PARSIPPANY, N.J. – B&G Foods Inc. announced that CFO Thomas P. Crimmins has resigned effective March 24 to pursue other opportunities. The company has started its search for Crimmins’ replacement. In the interim, Amy Chiovari, current corporate controller, will serve as CFO.
“On behalf of our entire team, I want to thank Tom for his contributions to B&G Foods’ success over the past two years and wish him continued success in his future endeavors,” said Robert C. Cantwell, president and CEO of B&G Foods.
Crimmins joined B&G Foods in March 2015 after 16 years working for DRS Technologies Inc. Prior to leaving he served as DRS’ executive vice president and CFO. From 1992 to 1999, Crimmins was an audit manager for PricewaterhouseCoopers. Crimmins replaced Cantwell, who had been the company’s executive vice president of finance and CFO at B&G Foods since 1991, when he was promoted to his current role as president and CEO.
According to the company’s statement, Crimmins’ departure was not the result of any dispute or disagreement with the company on any matter relating to the company’s accounting practices or financial statements.
“I am also pleased to report Amy Chiovari will serve as Interim chief financial officer. Amy has been an invaluable member of the B&G Foods family since joining the company in 1996,” Cantwell said. “Amy played a key role in our 2004 initial public offering and in numerous acquisitions and capital markets transactions over the past two decades. Amy has served in various capacities within our accounting and finance department and over the years has been responsible for many functions, including, corporate accounting, corporate finance, financial reporting, treasury, tax and internal control over financial reporting. Amy’s in-depth knowledge of our operations makes her well-suited for this leadership role and we are fortunate to have someone of Amy’s caliber serve as Interim CFO.”
