Rogers Communications announced on Monday afternoon it has appointed longtime veteran Glenn Brandt as its Chief Financial Officer.
Brandt recently had the role of Senior Vice President, Corporate Finance, and has been at Rogers for 30 years.
“Glenn is a highly regarded leader with deep industry experience as well as extensive experience in corporate finance, including raising capital and working with credit agencies,” said Tony Staffieri, President and CEO, in a statement. “His strong leadership as CFO will be integral as we work to successfully come together with Shaw, drive growth across our business, and maintain the strong balance sheet needed to invest for the future.”
Earlier this month, Staffieri was appointed Rogers CEO and president, as the company ended its search for a new chief executive, as part of leadership changes after public family boardroom drama consumed the company.
Interim CFO Paulina Molnar will work with Brandt on the transition of responsibilities, and then return to her previous role as SVP Controller and Risk Management, a position held for 16 years.
“I am honoured and excited to take on this new role at such a critical time in our company’s history,” said Brandt, who is set to mark 31 years at Rogers in March. “I look forward to working with the team to build on Rogers’ strong legacy of growth, deliver on our key priorities, and enhance value for our shareholders.”
