HH Gregg searches for new CFO

Consumer electronics retailer HH Gregg is looking for a new chief financial officer after Jeremy Aguilar resigned from the company to accept a similar role elsewhere.

Aguilar spent eight years with the Indianapolis-based operator of 228 stores. His resignation is effective as of January 31 at which time SVP of finance Andrew Giesler will assume CFO responsibilities on an interim basis.

“I would like to thank Jeremy for his leadership and many contributions to HH Gregg over the past eight years,” said HH Gregg president and CEO Dannis May. “Jeremy has been an instrumental member of our leadership team and helped support the growth of the company’s store base as we work toward becoming a national retailer. We are fortunate to be making this transition with a deep and experienced finance team in place.”

Interim CFO Gieseler joined HH Gregg in 2007 and has held several finance roles at the company. In addition to his current position, Giseler served as vp of finance, controller and director of finance and investor relations.

According to May, “Andy Giesler is a talented and experienced finance executive and I am confident he will lead the transition effectively. The company continues to pursue its key business strategies and Andy has been and will continue to be an important part of my team.”
