BakBone has sought to strengthen its financial team through a search for additional talent in recent months, and that effort is now intensified to focus on the recruitment of a permanent chief financial officer to join the BakBone management team.
"The Company, as well as members of the Board's Audit Committee, would like to thank Cliff for his contributions as interim chief financial officer during the past several months and we wish him well," stated Jim Johnson, president and CEO of BakBone Software. "Cliff's financial leadership has been instrumental in advancing the ongoing audit process. It is our near-term goal to appoint a permanent successor to Doug Lindroth who left the Company in May."
Compton will report to Jim Johnson who will serve as principal financial officer through the filing of the Company's delinquent reports. Compton comes to BakBone with 30 years of business and management experience including accounting, finance, treasury, planning, taxes and information systems. Most recently, he was vice president of finance and administration for Inxight Software, Inc. which was acquired by Business Objects. A respected financial executive, Compton served as chief financial officer for companies such as Terraspring, Inc. (acquired by Sun Microsystems) and Cooke Pharma, Inc. Compton is a Certified Public Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the University of Central Florida.
