Worthington appoints new CFO

Worthington Industries has named B. Andrew Rose as CFO of the company beginning Dec. 1. Rose will replace John S. Christie, who retired from the company in July.

Rose, 38, was most recently at MCG Capital Corp., where he was a senior investment professional in the Atlanta office for the $1.5 billion public company. Prior to that, Rose was a founding partner at Peachtree Equity Partners, L.P., a $110 million private equity fund backed by Goldman Sachs.

 "I am pleased that Andy is joining our team," Worthington Industries’ chairman and CEO John P. McConnell said.  "His financial expertise and his leadership role in manufacturing and distribution investments have prepared him well for this position.  Our finance group has done a good job of working through this period and the addition of Andy will strengthen our capabilities."

Worthington has also named Robert McMaster senior financial adviser to the Chairman. McMaster has been working with the Worthington corporate finance group since September.
