ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cotiviti Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: COTV) (“Cotiviti”), a leading provider of payment accuracy and analytics-driven solutions primarily focused on the healthcare industry, today announced the resignation of Chief Financial Officer Steve Senneff to pursue a new opportunity outside of healthcare. Mr. Senneff will remain with the company through the end of August to ensure an orderly transition. Effective September 1, 2017, Adrienne Calderone, Cotiviti’s Vice President and Controller, will serve as Chief Financial Officer on an interim basis. Cotiviti is commencing a search for a permanent successor.
“Steve’s financial, operational and business acumen has been extremely valuable to Cotiviti as we evolved from a private company to a publicly-traded leader in healthcare and retail payment accuracy solutions,” said Doug Williams, Chief Executive Officer. “During his tenure, Steve successfully guided us through our IPO and subsequent quarters of consecutive growth. Under his leadership, Cotiviti has solidified its disciplined financial strategy, established robust financial policies and procedures and placed the company on firm financial footing. We thank Steve for his many contributions and wish him success in his future endeavors.”
Ms. Calderone joined Cotiviti in 2012 as Vice President and Controller. Prior to Cotiviti, she served in senior executive positions for a number of publicly-traded companies including Vice President and Controller at L-1 Identity Solutions (now MorphoTrust USA Inc.); Senior Vice President and Controller, Chief Accounting Officer for SIRIUS XM Radio; and Vice President and Controller for PanAmSat Corporation. She received her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst – Isenberg School of Management and is a Certified Public Accountant. “Adrienne is an experienced leader and has played an integral principal role in the development of our finance organization and through the IPO,” continued Williams. “She is well-positioned to lead our finance operations through this transition and I look forward to working closely with her as we continue to execute on Cotiviti’s strategic objectives.”
“Cotiviti is a great company with a bright future and I am proud of all that we have accomplished so far,” said Steve Senneff, Chief Financial Officer. “I believe the transition will be seamless due to the experienced finance team in place and under Adrienne’s capable leadership. As I move on to my new opportunity, I wish all my colleagues much success.”
