Irvine, Calif. — Gateway today promoted John Goldsberry to chief financial officer, replacing Rod Sherwood who announced his retirement earlier this year.
Goldsberry will officially take over his new position on Aug. 29.
Goldsberry will oversee all aspects of Gateway’s financial management, control reporting, planning and investor relations. Previously, he headed the company’s operations division. Goldsberry held the post of eMachines chief financial officer and led the negotiations that led to that company being acquired by Gateway in 2004.
Gateway’s CEO Wayne Inouye said Goldsberry was tapped as the result of a long search process that looked at both internal and external candidates.
