Diebold names new CFO|
ORTH CANTON -- Gregory T. Geswein, 45, has been named Diebold
Incorporated's senior vice president and chief financial officer.
Geswein was most recently senior vice president and CFO at
Pioneer-Standard Electronics Inc. in Cleveland, Ohio.
Pioneer-Standard, a $2 billion distributor of electronic components
and mid-range computer systems, was recently named number three
on the PC Week Fast-Track 500 list for its aggressive implementation
of e-commerce, business extranets and Web technologies.
According to Diebold, Geswein is noted for his expertise in global
acquisitions, including absorbing acquired organizations into existing
financial processes and systems. Diebold recently acquired Brazilian
ATM manufacturer Procomp Amazonia Industria Electronica, S.A
and the financial self-service of Groupe Bull.
"We've been expanding significantly and simultaneously in
numerous international markets in recent years and need a CFO with
experience not only in the global technology industry, but also in
integrating diverse acquisitions with existing corporate systems and
processes," said Walden W. O'Dell, president and CEO.
Prior to his tenure at Pioneer-Standard, Geswein spent 13 years at
Mead Corporation of Dayton, Ohio, a $4 billion international paper
products manufacturer, in a variety of senior financial posts, including
vice president and corporate controller and corporate treasurer.
