Shettigar’s appointment follows the resignation of Samuel L. Hillard, the company’s current senior vice president, chief financial officer, effective May 6, 2022, as he pursues a new career opportunity with an early-stage technology company. The company noted that Hillard’s departure is not related to Glatfelter’s operations, financial reporting, or controls, Glatfelter said in a press release.
Shettigar joined Glatfelter in 2014 and has served in leadership roles with increasing responsibilities critical to the Company’s investor relations, treasury, corporate development, and strategic initiatives. In September 2021, he was promoted to an expanded role as vice president, ESG, investor relations and corporate treasurer, and was appointed as an executive officer by the company’s board of directors. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an MBA and master’s degree in Information Management from Washington University in St. Louis.
“Shettigar has a strong track record of building trusted relationships and delivering results at Glatfelter. With his extensive financial acumen, credit experience, and strategic decision-making skills, coupled with the company’s strong and experienced corporate finance team, Shettigar is well-positioned to play a critical role in the continued execution of our long-term growth strategy, while maintaining Glatfelter’s commitment to financial discipline. We look forward to Shettigar’s leadership and guidance in his expanded role as Glatfelter’s CFO,” Dante C. Parrini, chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
“Hillard has been a key leader as we have made significant strides in reshaping Glatfelter into a more growth-oriented business and we are well-positioned to continue to execute on that strategy under Shettigar’s leadership. Prior to his departure, Hillard will be participating in the company’s 2022 first-quarter earnings call on May 3, 2022, and the Annual Meeting of Shareholders on May 5. We thank Hillard for his numerous contributions and wish him continued success as he begins the next phase of his career,” Parrini continued.
