On June 3, the board of Navistar International Corp. appointed A.J. Cederoth to serve as the interim principal financial officer of the company, replacing William A. Caton who previously served in that capacity during the medical leave of absence taken by the company’s then-current CFO, Terry M. Endsley.
On April 15, the company announced that Endsley had passed away after a brief but difficult battle with cancer and that Cederoth would be handling the day-to-day financial and accounting responsibilities. The appointment of Cederoth as interim principal financial officer coordinates the accounting and financial functions under his leadership pending the search for a new CFO, according to a news release.
Cederoth, 44, previously served as vice president and CFO of the Engine Division of Navistar Inc. and vice president and treasurer of Navistar Financial Corp., the company’s captive finance subsidiary.
Navistar acquired certain assets of Monaco Coach Corp. last week for approximately $47 million.
