DETROIT -- Delphi Automotive L.L.P. CFO John Sheehan plans to leave the supplier to be the CFO at a Pittsburgh-area pharmaceutical company.
Sheehan, 49, will begin his new role at Mylan Inc. on April 1, where he will oversee the company's global finance operations, including accounting and financial control, financial planning, analysis, treasury and tax, according to a statement issued by Mylan today.
Mylan generated about $5 billion in 2009 revenue and has seen massive growth in recent years, jumping from $2.2 billion in 2007 revenue to revenue of $5.1 billion in 2008.
Sheehan was Delphi's chief restructuring officer from the time Delphi filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October 2005, until being named CFO in October 2008.
He had been at Delphi since 2002, when he was hired as chief accounting officer and controller.
“Through an extremely difficult period for our company and our industry, John has been a tenacious and steadfast advocate for us with the financial community, assuring that we had adequate funding to operate and meet our commitments to our customers,” Delphi CEO Rodney O'Neal said in a statement.
“While we will miss his guidance, work ethic, and leadership of the financial team at Delphi, we wish him the very best in new endeavors.”
