Diversified Communications’ President & CEO Theodore Wirth has promoted Whit Mitchell to chief financial officer. Mitchell joined Diversified in 2013 and served as corporate vice president of finance since 2018. He has since taken thoughtful steps to ensure the continued health and prosperity of the company. Most recently, his leadership was a critical part of Diversified Communications overcoming the recent pandemic.
“Diversified has emerged from the pandemic positioned for growth, and Whit’s leadership has been instrumental,” says Wirth (pictured right). “To ensure our stability over the past 16 months, Whit collaborated with each division, developed new strategic reporting to inform our decisions, and maintained an engaged and talented finance team while working remotely.”
“I am honored to have earned the trust and support of our Board of Directors and our global leadership team,” says Mitchell. “I have been bolstered by their support; and through the talent, inquisitive nature and determination of my finance team, Diversified is positioned well for the future.”
