Sean Goodman has provided notice of his intention to resign from his position of senior vice president and chief financial officer of Asbury Automotive Group.
Asbury announced the news on Friday, stating that the resignation would take place effective Nov. 15.
Goodman has accepted the position of chief financial officer for another publicly traded company outside of the auto retail industry.
The company also announced the appointment of company vice president, corporate controller and chief accounting officer William Stax as interim principal financial officer. That appointment takes place effective Nov. 16 while the company seeks a new chief financial officer.
“We thank Sean for his service to Asbury and wish him well in his next endeavor,” Asbury president and chief executive officer David Hult said in a news release.
Hult continued, “We are pleased that Sean has agreed to remain with the company until after we file our quarterly report on the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2019.”
“I would like to thank David for the opportunity to serve as CFO of such a great company,” Goodman said. “I will miss Asbury and wish the team every success in the future.”
