CIRI named Stig Colberg chief financial officer effective Dec. 19, 2011. Colberg joined CIRI in 2008 and was the Company’s chief business development officer. He now heads CIRI’s Accounting and Finance Department, in addition to the Business Development Department and tax compliance and planning.
Colberg was a partner at the Silicon Valley law firm of Gunderson Dettmer Stough Villeneuve Franklin & Hachigian LLP, prior to joining CIRI, where he focused on the organization of investment partnerships and structuring private investments and merger and acquisition transactions. Colberg earned a Juris Doctor with distinction from Stanford Law School and graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with a bachelor’s in Asian studies.
“CIRI’s CFOs typically oversee tax matters, finance duties, business development and accounting for the Company,” said Margie Brown, CIRI president and CEO. “Stig was already handling two of these functions, so it made sense for him to assume the additional duties. And with a strong controller in Rhonda Oliver, the transition will be a smooth one.”
