Liberty Lake-based Itron Inc. has named W. Mark Schmitz as its new chief financial officer and executive vice president.
Schmitz has more than four decades of experience in finance and executive roles in manufacturing, service, retail and technology industries.
Most recently he was CFO of Alghanim Industries, a global corporation headquartered in Kuwait.
He previously worked as CFO at a number of other companies, including the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., Tyco International and Plug Power Inc. For more than a dozen years Schmitz also held executive positions with General Motors.
Itron’s previous CFO, Steven Helmbrecht, announced in April he would leave the company at the end of the year.
