McGrath will report directly to CEO Mike Gregoire and manage the company’s global corporate and business unit financial functions, encompassing controller role, treasury, tax, investor relations and risk management functions, CA Technologies said Monday.
“Kieran has become an integral part of our management team, demonstrating both the strategic vision and the business acumen to capitalize on our opportunities and help shape the future of CA Technologies, ” said Gregoire.
