September 2016 – St. Louis, MO – The diversified company Tacony Corporation continues moving forward to meet strategic goals for future growth and expansion. Restructuring of the leadership team is part of the process. A long term succession plan is underway at Tacony, which includes the recent selection of a new Chief Financial Officer.
The company announces the promotion of Brad Overby to CFO. Previously, Overby served as the Tacony Corporation Director of Financial Planning & Analysis.
Hinderer adds that for some time the company has planned to separate the role of CFO from that of Company President. It was a matter of finding the right person for the job.
“In choosing Brad Overby to be our new CFO, we’ve found the right professional to help guide our company as we make decisions and update processes to meet our goals. Brad has already helped structure a new chart of accounts for Epicor, our new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that will be launched this year.”
As the new Tacony Corporation CFO, Overby brings 20-plus years of diverse financial experience in public and private accounting, including large public and small private enterprises, and in distribution and service industries. His leadership experience encompasses systems implementation, strategy deployment, forecasting, budgeting, global consolidation and overall process improvement.
“Tacony Corporation is a very financially-stable company with a tremendous opportunity to take our business any direction we want to go. We can expand into markets we currently serve, or we can branch out into new ones,” says Overby. “I’m looking forward to using my expertise to help interface our new Epicor ERP system with the current systems in use. Ultimately, we’ll be using a more streamlined and modernized accounting system that will provide more detailed reporting and analysis of our business operations. It will significantly help our leadership team leverage current market knowledge and use it to our best advantage as we expand and grow.”
Under the new leadership structure, Overby will report to Hinderer and join the Tacony Corporate Executive Council. The Accounting, Credit and Customer Service departments will report to Overby.
In addition to working on exciting new business opportunities at Tacony, Overby says the family feel of the company is a bonus. “Everyone likes working with nice people, and Tacony has nice, smart people employed. It’s a great place for me to help build upon the success Tacony has earned for the past 70 years and help facilitate future growth.”
Overby resides in Wildwood, Mo., with his wife, Emily, and has three children, Jack, Nolan and Jarrod.
