Harley-Davidson’s CFO Thomas Bergmann resigned from the company to “seek other career opportunities,” the manufacturer announced.
Bergmann joined the company in 2006 after James Ziemer became president and CEO in 2005. John Olin, vice president and controller for Harley-Davidson’s Motor Co. unit, will replace Bergmann on an interim basis.
The company also named former vice president and treasurer Perry Glassgow as interim president of Harley-Davidson Financial Services, which is effective immediately. Bergmann also had been serving as interim president of the unit.
Currently the senior director of financial reporting for Harley, Mark Kornetzke was appointed to chief accounting officer. Kornetzke is a 13-year veteran of Harley-Davidson.
“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,” Harley-Davidson CEO Keith Wandell said in the press release. He took over as Harley-Davidson’s president and CEO May 1, replacing the retired Ziemer. “We also wish to thank Tom for his many contributions to our business and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
