Gardner Denver names new CFO

Gardner Denver Holdings announced that Neil Snyder will succeed Todd Herndon as the company’s chief financial officer effective Jan. 1, 2019.

Herndon will stay on with the company to assist in the transition of the CFO role to Snyder.

Snyder is currently senior vice president of Global Finance, Business Development & Planning. He joined Gardner Denver in March 2016 as vice president of Strategy & Planning, Industrials Segment. In January 2017, he was promoted to senior vice president of Strategy, Business Development & Planning, and in August 2018, he took on expanded responsibilities with the appointment to his current role.

Prior to joining Gardner Denver, Snyder served at Capital Safety Inc. as its vice president, head of financial planning and analysis, and president, Europe, Middle East and Africa from September 2013 to May 2014.

“Neil brings to the CFO role comprehensive knowledge of Gardner Denver and our end markets as well as strong financial expertise,” said Vicente Reynal, chief executive officer. “In addition, his experience leading our business development function makes him particularly well suited to take on this important leadership role during Gardner Denver’s next chapter of transformation. I am excited to have him as my partner as we continue moving the company forward.”

Herndon plans to retire later in 2019. Until then, he will stay with the company in an executive capacity and assist in the transition of the CFO role.
