Axon Accounting SVP Jim Zito to Serve as Interim CFO

Jim Zito, senior vice president of accounting and corporate controller of Axon (Nasdaq: AXON), has been named interim chief financial officer at the public safety technology developer.

He replaces Jawad Ahsan, who stepped down as CFO after five years in the job, and Axon said Wednesday it will work with an executive search firm to identify a permanent successor to Ahsan.

Zito joined the company in 2017 as VP of accounting and previously spent more than six years at General Electric’s health care unit and worked as a senior manager at PwC, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Rick Smith, CEO of Axon, said Zito has been instrumental in the development of the accounting and controllership organization and his appointment as interim CFO will support the continued execution of the company’s financial priorities.
