Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, Inc. promoted Andria Buechner, former director of financial planning and analysis, to chief financial officer, filling the vacancy left when Ron Ostrowski was named president of Rawlings last month.
“I have worked very closely with Andria during my 2.5-year tenure with Rawlings and am confident that she will bring the necessary company knowledge, applicable experience and focus needed to be successful in this role, as well as a passion for the company and the sport of baseball and softball,” said Ostrowski.
As director of financial planning and analysis since 2015, Buechter has managed the budget, forecasting, strategic planning and financial reporting. She also played a key role in preparing Rawlings 2018 business sale package and acquisition of Easton through analysis and preparation. Buechter leads a team of analysts to measure performance, improve processes and increase financial literacy across the company.
In her new role as CFO, Buechter will analyze and drive strategic initiatives for sales, marketing, sourcing, and supply chain, as well as drive the day-to-day execution of the financial and operational objectives of the company.
