Financial Executives: Keeping Track

Gregory Geswein,
CFO of Libbey, a $750 million maker of glass tableware in Toledo, Ohio, was named to the new position of vice president of strategic planning and business development. The move follows the Securities and Exchange Commission's announcement that it is likely to bring a civil enforcement action against Geswein related to accounting matters at Diebold, where he was CFO from 2000 to 2005. Richard Reynolds, 63, succeeds Geswein as Libbey's CFO and executive vice president. Reynolds, chief operating officer at the company since 1995, had served as its CFO from 1993 to 1995.

Dean Foods, the $11.2 billion producer of dairy products, hired Shaun Mara as chief accounting officer and senior vice president. He succeeds Ron McCrummen, who is leaving the Dallas-based company to pursue other interests. Mara, 45, most recently was senior vice president of finance at Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. Before Mars acquired Wrigley, Mara also served as Wrigley's corporate controller and chief accounting officer. Earlier, he worked at Gillette, Staples and KPMG.
