CANTON, Mass., May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LoJack Corporation (NASDAQ: LOJN) today announced that Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Donald R. Peck is leaving the Company to pursue new opportunities. LoJack has retained international executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles to assist in the process of identifying a successor. Effective immediately, Casey Delaney, LoJack's Vice President and Controller since April 2011, will serve as Acting CFO until a full-time replacement is named. Peck will stay on in an advisory role until June 30, 2014 to assist in the transition.
"Since joining LoJack in November 2011, Don has strengthened our finance organization and contributed to the success of the Company," said Randy Ortiz, LoJack's Chief Executive Officer and President. "I want to thank Don for his service and wish him the best in his future endeavors. Casey, who has 25 years of corporate finance experience, is well qualified to perform as Acting CFO during the executive search process."
"I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with Randy and the other members of the senior management team as LoJack has grown its domestic Stolen Vehicle Recovery business and expanded into the fleet management space," Peck said. "Under Randy's leadership, LoJack is well positioned to execute on its strategic objectives. With this month's successful ruling related to the Brazilian arbitration, the time is right for me to take the next step in my career. I look forward to assisting with Casey's transition in her new role as Acting CFO."
