NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (NYSE-MKT:VISI) today announced that James Whitney Mayhew, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has decided to step down from his position for personal reasons. Mr. Whitney will be leaving Volt after a 60-day transition period ending March 20, 2015. The company will initiate a formal search for his successor.
“Jim has played an instrumental role in helping us execute on our strategic priorities and create a more highly focused and profitable Volt,” said Ron Kochman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During Jim's tenure, the company has made substantial progress in strengthening our financial controls and in achieving significant milestones in our financial turnaround plan, including the completion of the multi-year restatement and our move to the NYSE-MKT exchange. He has also built a very strong finance team, one that will continue to benefit the company for years to come. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire company, I want to thank Jim for his service and extend him our best wishes for this new chapter in his life.”
“It has been an incredibly rewarding experience to be a part of Volt’s transformation,” said Mr. Whitney. “I believe the company’s solid financial foundation positions Volt very well for continued improvement and strong performance.
