Gregory A. Risch, vice president and chief accounting officer, will serve as interim CFO, effective immediately, until a replacement is found.
“Jim played an instrumental role in guiding Accuride through the recent economic and industry downturn and the company’s subsequent restructuring activities, which helped restore and strengthen the company’s balance sheet and position the company for future growth,” said Rich Dauch, president & CEO. “The board of directors and I extend our sincere thanks to Jim for his service to Accuride and wish him success in his future endeavors.”
Woodward joined Accuride in March 2009 as interim senior vice president & CFO and was appointed permanent CFO in May 2010.
