AeroVironment Names Interim CFO

Monrovia-based unmanned vehicle maker AeroVironment said late Thursday that it has swapped its CFO, and named Teresa Covington as Interim Chief Financial Officer, as its current CFO, Jikum Kim, has left the company. AeroVironment said Kim left the company to "pursue other opportunities." Kim had been at AeroVironment since 2010. The company said Kim's departure is unrelated to any issues regarding financial disclosures, accounting or legal matters. AeroVironment said it has launched a search with a global executive search firm to replace Kim. Covington has been at AeroVironment since 2011, and previously was SVP and CFO of Line 6.
