Seasoned leader at Fortune 500 companies and former Avnet executive joins world-class leadership team to guide JDA through next phase of SaaS-led growth
JDA Software, Inc., today announced the appointment of Kevin Moriarty as executive vice president and Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Moriarty joins JDA on August 13. He most recently served as CFO at Avnet, a Fortune 500 company, leading global technology distributor, and Industrial Internet of Things platform provider with annual revenue of $25.7 billion.
“It is a pivotal time for JDA as we continue to drive operational excellence and execute on our SaaS transformation and innovation strategy, positioning us for continued growth across all segments of the business. Kevin brings a strong operational, M&A, and capital markets background to JDA which will be of strategic importance to our journey ahead,” said Girish Rishi, chief executive officer, JDA. “Kevin’s expertise and values fully complement our world-class leadership team and we welcome him with open arms to JDA Nation.”
Moriarty’s extensive experience spans more than 30 years of senior management positions in finance and accounting at leading, global companies, such as Avnet, Honeywell International, Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb and PricewaterhouseCoopers. While at Avnet, Moriarty played a critical role in reprioritizing the company’s portfolio with the sale of the Technology Solutions business to Tech Data Corporation and the acquisitions of Premier Farnell and Hackster.IO. He was also instrumental in Avnet’s capital allocation program including instituting a dividend and managing its disciplined share repurchase program.
