Reading time ( words)

Sparton Corporation announced today that Don Pearson, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Sparton Corporation, will be leaving, effective June 9, 2015, in order to accept a position as Chief Financial Officer of a private equity-backed company.

The Company is conducting a search for a new Chief Financial Officer and has engaged a senior finance professional to assist the Company with financial and accounting matters on an interim basis. During the search phase, Mr. Wood will serve as interim principal financial officer for the Company.

Mr. Pearson noted that his resignation did not result from any disagreement regarding the Company’s financial reporting or accounting policies, procedures, estimates or judgments, but was due to the nature of the opportunity he was offered. The Company does not anticipate any disruption to financial reporting, planning, integration matters or other initiatives which Mr. Pearson is involved in.

“We wish Don the best as he moves to his new opportunity,” said Cary Wood, President and CEO of Sparton. “It is disappointing to lose Don at this time, but the opportunity in front of him is too great to ignore. Over the last several months, his leadership has been a valuable ingredient in influencing and preparing Sparton to effectively execute the 2020 Vision by effectively strengthening the finance team, processes, and systems since his arrival.”
