Stocks in this article: FMC

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Corporation (NYSE:FMC) today announced that Chuck Thomas has been elected vice president of Finance.  The company also has named Nicholas Pfeiffer corporate controller.  He will assume the position from Graham Wood, who will retire from FMC on October 1, 2013.

Thomas brings 30 years of FMC finance experience to his new role, having most recently served as the Agricultural Solutions group controller.  As vice president of Finance, he will have executive responsibility for financial planning and analysis, budgeting, external reporting, internal controls and compliance.  Thomas will report to Paul Graves, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

"Chuck is an exceptional leader with deep business experience, financial acumen and broad knowledge of our company," said Graves.  "For more than a decade, he has been part of the management team that transformed FMC Agricultural Solutions into one of the industry's most profitable and fastest growing providers of crop protection products.  I look forward to working with Chuck as we continue to transform FMC Finance into an organization that can support the company's rapid growth."

Pfeiffer is a seasoned finance leader with nearly 20 years of experience in a variety of corporate accounting, controls and SEC regulatory roles.  He has led FMC's external reporting group since 2004, and most recently served as assistant corporate controller.  Pfeiffer, who previously held accounting positions at Comcast Corporation, Safeguard Scientifics and KPMG, will report to Thomas.

"Nick is uniquely qualified to assume the role of corporate controller," Graves said.  "He brings a high degree of discipline, integrity, and experience to this critical position, and has worked for nearly a decade under an exceptional mentor in Graham Wood.  The transition of chief accounting officer responsibilities to Nick will be transparent."

Graves praised Wood's 30 years of leadership and contributions to FMC.
