Effective immediately, Bergstrom announces Aaron Potter and Steve Boyle will take on new roles that will further strengthen the company’s finance organization.

Potter has been promoted to vice president, Financial Planning and Analysis, and Boyle has been named vice president and treasurer.

Bergstrom says Potter will be responsible for creating and driving the planning and analysis processes that will allow the company to look forward more effectively and better prepare for the future needs of the company.

Potter joined Bergstrom in 2005 and, in 2013, completed a four-year assignment overseas as the director of Finance for Bergstrom Europe in Ystrad Mynach, Wales, UK. The company says Potter is currently an adjunct Professor of Finance for the MBA program at Rockford University and prior to joining Bergstrom, held positions as a financial controller for Atwood Mobile Products, an internal auditor for CLARCOR and a cost accountant for E.D. Entyre.

“Aaron has more than 15 years of demonstrated experience in fiscal planning, financial management and acquisition due diligence,” says Jack Shaffer, president and CEO at Bergstrom. “He is a significant part of our growing culture of financial excellence and he will further advance globally integrated planning and analysis as a cornerstone of Bergstrom’s financial accountability and responsibility.”

Boyle will be focused primarily on cash management, banking relationships and insurance, the company says.

Boyle has more than 30 years of experience in financial management and planning. He joined Bergstrom in 2004 as the chief financial officer and was responsible for all financial and IT responsibilities. Prior to Bergstrom, Boyle worked for Atwood Mobile Products, GC-Thorsen, Household Manufacturing and Schwitzer, among others.

“Steve is an exceptional leader whose financial market experience, strategic thinking skills and knowledge of the company make him a valuable asset of the Bergstrom team,” says Shaffer.
