Way has hired veteran finance leader Stuart Blackburn as Vice President of Finance to implement and lead new processes for the growing organization. Blackburn brings strategic, analytical, and financial acumen that will contribute to Way’s future success. “I’m excited to join a company with so much potential for growth and I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to Way to help achieve this potential” said Blackburn.
The growth that Way is experiencing this year has led to an increase in senior hiring and internal promotions to help steer the company’s next phase. In addition to Blackburn, Way has recently announced personnel changes in R&D and Product Development, Operations and Service. “We’re excited about adding Stu’s expertise to our team and the impact that he’s going to make for our Finance group and overall operations” said Wayne Kaylor, CEO of Way.
Blackburn most recently served as Director of Manufacturing Finance with the Kraft Heinz Company for over a decade. He has a BS in Corporate Finance from Ball State University. Outside of work, Stuart enjoys fishing, boating and spending time with his family.
