Compass Minerals Announces Departure of Chief Financial Officer

Vice president and treasurer will serve as interim CFO.

Compass Minerals (NYSE:CMP) announced today that effective immediately its chief financial officer, Patrick “Doug” Linehan, is departing the company due to unforeseen personal circumstances. Linehan’s departure involves no disputes with the company or issues regarding accounting practices, financial statements or operations.

Concurrently, James “Jamie” Standen, vice president, finance and treasurer, has been named interim CFO and treasurer.

“While we are disappointed by Doug’s departure, I am confident that Jamie has the depth of experience to provide us the strategic financial leadership and continuity we need at this juncture as we look to strengthen our balance sheet and improve earnings,” stated Fran Malecha, Compass Minerals president and CEO. “Jamie has been integral in leading the integration of our recent Brazilian acquisition as the finance leader for the Plant Nutrition South America segment. Furthermore, with his strong financial acumen and extensive capital markets knowledge, he has created significant financial flexibility within the company’s capital structure to support the execution of our strategic vision and is well-known and respected by our external and internal stakeholders.”

The company will immediately begin a process to identify a permanent CFO, which will include internal and external candidates.

Standen joined Compass Minerals in 2006 as assistant treasurer and has held positions of increasing responsibility since that time. In addition to his leadership of the Plant Nutrition South America finance function, Standen currently leads all capital market transactions, manages all commercial banking relationships, oversees financial risk management and the corporate financial planning and analysis team and serves on the company’s investment committee. Prior to joining Compass Minerals, Standen spent six years in various finance roles at Kansas City Southern Railway Company.
