Tbaytel has announced the appointment of its new chief financial officer.
The telecommunications company officially announced that Michael Coffey was the new CFO as of Jan. 27. Coffey will be leading the company’s financial and accounting divisions, a responsibility previously held by Tbaytel president and CEO Dan Topatigh.
“Michael’s demonstrated ability to lead a number of companies through periods of organizational expansion and financial growth has already proven to be an asset in the initial weeks since he joined Tbaytel’s executive team,” Topatigh is quoted as saying in a Tbaytel news release issued Monday.
“He has extensive experience at the senior management level across a variety of industries and I look forward to working with Michael to continue delivering on Tbaytel’s commitment to provide our customers with the very best in telecommunication solutions.”
Before joining Tbaytel, Coffey, native to Thunder Bay, held the position of controller for GRK Fasteners. He was also controller and vice-president of administration at DST Group Inc., and director of finance for The Chronicle Journal.
Before entering the publishing and engineering sectors, Coffey worked in the automotive industry and worked as a controller with Dieco Technologies Inc. in Brampton, Ont.
