Anderson replaces Bill Retterath, who recently departed from the company. "Bill served as Daktronics' CFO since 2001," said Jim Morgan, CEO of Daktronics. "I appreciate the contributions Bill has made over that time, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

"I have been honored to serve the company over the years and as I leave the company I believe it is well positioned to achieve its long-term financial goals. I have enjoyed working with Sheila and know that she will do a great job in her new role," said Bill Retterath.

"With our mix of standard products, large contracts, and international business our accounting systems are reasonably complex for the size of our company," continued Morgan. "Sheila has an in-depth understanding of our business from an accounting and finance perspective and is well positioned to step into this important leadership role in the company."
