COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Command Center, Inc. (OTCQB: CCNI), a national provider of on-demand and temporary staffing solutions, has elected Richard Finlay to its board of directors. Finlay takes the board seat held by Command Center CFO, Jeff Wilson. Wilson served on the board since 2010 and was a member of the audit committee until his appointment as CFO in 2014.
Following his appointment as CFO, Wilson continued serving as a director on an interim basis until the search for a new independent director could be completed. Command Center is committed to maintaining a board of directors that is comprised of people who are independent from the company, apart from the CEO. The company believes this is the best governance practice and will engender constructive deliberations among directors.
Richard Finlay has served in senior leadership positions (as either CEO or CFO) for a number of enterprises, including Pet’s Choice, a veterinary hospital group; Fluid Marine, a boat manufacturer; Kinetix Living, a fitness and nutrition company; and Carena, an early stage health care company. Earlier in his career he worked in business development at The Boeing Company. He is currently executive vice president and CFO of Eastside Catholic School, a private school located in Sammamish, Washington. Prior to Eastside, he was the director of operations for Ecofiltro S.A., which delivers safe drinking water to Guatemalan families.
“Richard brings to our board a broad financial and operational background, including responsibility for both organic growth and acquisitions,” said Command Center president and CEO, Bubba Sandford. “His appointment comes at an opportune time, as we continue to profitably grow from existing stores while evaluating the most efficient ways to deliver shareholder value and the various alternatives with which to deploy our cash. These alternatives include enhanced training and support for of our current branch operations, new store openings, potential acquisitions and/or stock buyback."
Finlay’s non-profit experience includes serving on the board of directors and as interim CEO for the Seattle/King County Humane Society. Finlay graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of Washington.
