Executive Changes at Harley-Davidson
Starting with May 1, 2009, John Olin, the Motor Company's Vice President and Controller, took over the added responsibility of interim Chief Financial Officer for Harley-Davidson, Inc. and Perry Glassgow, the Company's Vice President and Treasurer, became the interim President of Harley-Davidson Financial Services (HDFS).
Mark Kornetzke, currently Senior Director, Financial Reporting, was appointed the Company’s Chief Accounting Officer.
"We are fortunate to have these well-experienced leaders who are deeply knowledgeable and highly involved in our business assume these critical roles as we conduct an internal and external search for these two key positions," said Keith Wandell, Harley-Davidson, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer.
"We also wish to thank Tom for his many contributions to our business and wish him well in his future endeavors."
Tom Bergmann joined the company in 2006 and it was after he climbed on all the executive positions in the company that he became interim President of HDSF. At the end of April, 2009, he decided to leave the company in peaceful conditions.
25 years of financial leadership recommended Olin for the interim CFO position. Glasgow joined HDFS in 1992 and has held progressively senior-level positions within the company. Kornetzke has been in HDFS for 13 years already, and was a senior auditor with Deloitte & Touche LLP before joining the team. Both Olin and Kornetzke have a Certified Public Accountant designation.
Harley-Davidson, Inc. is the parent company for the group of companies doing business as Harley-Davidson Motor Company (HDMC), Buell Motorcycle Company (Buell), MV Agusta and Harley-Davidson Financial Services (HDFS).
