Ohio-based metals manufacturing company Worthington Industries, whose products include compressed natural gas (CNG) storage and other CNG fuel solutions, has appointed Joseph Hayek its vice president and chief financial officer (CFO).
Andy Rose, previously both president and CFO, will continue as company president.
Hayek joined Worthington Industries in April 2014 as vice president of mergers and acquisitions (M&A). In 2017, he was named general manager of the company’s oil and gas equipment business. Before joining Worthington, Hayek was president of SARCOM, the largest division of PCM Inc., a $1.5 billion IT solutions provider. Hayek also led PCM’s M&A and investor relations groups as executive vice president during his six years there. In addition, he spent 10 years in investment banking with Raymond James and Wachovia.
“Joe has made a significant impact over his five years with the company. He is a great fit culturally, and I know will do an excellent job as CFO,” says John McConnell, chairman and CEO of Worthington. “Andy will focus his efforts on refining our business strategy and executing the next phase of our growth.”
Earlier this year, Worthington’s alternative fuels business announced two new CNG fuel system products for the medium- and heavy-duty markets: an above frame back of cab and a top of body system.
