PrimaLoft, Inc., a subsidiary of Compass Diversified, promoted Jason Kerley to chief financial officer from vice president and controller. He will transition to the position on the retirement of the current CFO, Tom Seaver.

“We are thrilled for Jason to advance into an executive role with the company,” said PrimaLoft president and CEO Mike Joyce. “Jason has been with PrimaLoft since 2012 when he played an integral role in establishing the company’s financial organization and structure following the management-led buyout from Albany International Corporation. Over the past decade, Jason has demonstrated that he deeply understands our history, company values and our overall business. We look forward to his valuable partnership as a part of our executive leadership team.”

During his time with PrimaLoft, Kerley has been instrumental in developing the company’s business systems, coordination of international financial reporting and Primaloft’s financial and tax audits. He also played a pivotal role in its private equity transactions with Prudential Capital Partners, Victor Capital Partners and Compass Diversified, leading due diligence processes and accounting requirements.

Kerley is replacing Tom Seaver, retiring this year after over a decade as PrimaLoft’s CFO.

“I would like to express our deep appreciation for the immense positive impact that Tom Seaver has had during his tenure at PrimaLoft,” said Joyce. “Tom led the establishment of the company’s entire financial organization in 2012 and has been an invaluable steward of the business over his 11 years with the company. Both personally and on behalf of the company, I would like to thank Tom for his central role in making PrimaLoft what it is today.”
