Western Digital Shuffles CFO
Irvine-based Western Digital said late Thursday that it is shuffling its CFO, with current CFO Olivier Leonetti leaving the company, and Mark Long taking over as Executive Vice President, Finance. Western Digital said the move comes as a result of its integration of HGST and WD subsidiaries. Leonetti will continue to serve as CFO until September 1st. WD said that Long, who has served as Chief Strategy Officer at Western Digital and HGST over the past three years, will continue to also hold the Chief Strategy Officer position. Western Digital is a major manufacturer of disk drives and other storage products.
