Central Valley, the Napa, Calif.-based pro dealer, has appointed Bill Robertson as the company’s new chief financial officer.
Robertson succeeds David Templeton, who had previously announced his intent to retire after a seven-year career with the company.
With more than 20 years of experience in corporate and financial strategy, including several executive positions, Robertson served as CFO and treasurer of Orchard Supply Hardware (OSH) from 2007 through 2011. At OSH, he helped lead the California-based home improvement retailer through the “Great Recession” and the eventual spin-off transaction resulting in OSH becoming a $700 million standalone public company.
Following OSH, Robertson held the position of CFO at Spectralink, a designer and manufacturer of wireless equipment serving global retail and manufacturing clients. Most recently, Robertson has provided CFO-level services to small- to mid-sized businesses as a consultant and advisor.
"After a thorough state-wide search, we are thrilled to welcome Bill Robertson to Central Valley," said Steve Patterson, president and CEO of Central Valley. "Bill is a great addition to our seasoned team of executives and his experience is a great asset as we look at potential growth opportunities."
“I am very excited to be joining Central Valley at such an important time in the company’s history,” said Robertson. “The building materials industry is growing and changing every day, and I look forward to being part of the team that is driving growth.”
