JDA Software Appoints New Executive Vice President and CFO

JDA Software Group has hired Peter Hathaway as executive vice president and chief financial officer. Hathaway will be responsible for JDA Software’s finance, accounting, investor relations and information technology groups.

Hathaway joins JDA Software with more than 30 years of financial management experience. Most recently, he served as the executive vice president and chief financial officer at Allied Waste Industries, the second-largest solid waste management company in the US.

During his tenure at Allied Waste, Hathaway with the finance team led a multi-year restructuring of the balance sheet and a leverage-reduction programme, which significantly cut the cost of debt and improved cash flow. He also introduced and integrated shareholder-value mapping into related metrics, dashboards, return-based measurement, capital allocation and a decision-support model, as well as established the company’s tone for governance, compliance and reporting. Prior to joining Allied Waste, Hathaway held various financial management positions at Browning Ferris Industries and Arthur Andersen.
