This week, Oct. 5 2018, Diebold Nixdorf announced the appointment of Jeffrey Rutherford as interim chief financial officer, effective immediately.
Rutherford replaces Chris Chapman, who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities, according to a press release.
Diebold Nixdorf has engaged a national firm to conduct a search for a permanent CFO; Chapman will provide support in an advisory capacity to assist with the transition.
Rutherford has a 35-year career in corporate finance and accounting, with more than 20 years in senior leadership roles, the release said. He joins the firm from Edgewater

"We are pleased to have Jeff join us, particularly at this important moment in time for the company," Diebold Nixdorf CEO Gerrard Schmid said in the release.
"We thank Chris for his many contributions over his more than two decades with Diebold. We also wish him the best in his future endeavours."
