HALO Branded Solutions (PPAI 106462) has hired Heather Bridges as the company’s new chief financial officer. Bridges will succeed Linda Janczkowski who announced her intention in July to reduce her role with the Sterling, Illinois, distributor. Bridges will report to Marc Simon, CEO of HALO.

Bridges’ career in finance and strategic planning at major consumer product companies includes 18 years at S.C. Johnson, where she most recently led the finance function and served on the executive committee for North America.

“HALO is well positioned for continued profitable growth,” says Bridges. “The positive culture and complete focus on creating opportunities for key stakeholders drew me to the opportunity. I look forward to contributing additional leadership and expertise.”

Simon adds, “Heather was the obvious choice after a very thorough search. She will be an exceptional addition to our leadership team. Her success in managing organizations of tremendous scale through acquisitions and ERP conversions and the development of sophisticated financial planning and analysis teams will add tremendous value to HALO. I could not be more excited to welcome Heather to HALO.”
