CD&R names COO Jillian Griffiths to succeed Theresa Gore as CFO


Global buyout major Clayton Dubilier & Rice has appointed COO Jillian Griffiths as CFO to succeed Theresa Gore, who has chosen to shift from her present role to one that allows her greater flexibility, the firm said.

Griffiths joined CD&R in 2015 as partner and has led the expansion of its operations, finance, legal and compliance, human capital, office administrative services and technology terms.

She will continue to lead the firm’s finance, IT and office administrative services in her new role, the firm said.

Prior to joining CD&R, Griffiths spent over 22 years at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where she was a partner in the firm’s U.S. Deals practice, specializing in financial due diligence. She participated in over 150 transactions, dedicating a majority of her time advising private equity firms, including CD&R, as well as public companies across a wide variety of industries.

Nate Sleeper, CEO at CD&R, said, “We strive to constantly evolve the capabilities of our finance function as the scope and complexity of our activities increase along with demands for reporting, transparency, and security. “Over the past six years at the Firm and at PwC before that, Jillian has effectively managed a wide range of challenging projects and delivered exceptional results. We look forward to the next chapter of her leadership as our CFO.”

CD&R reportedly surged past its goal in February for Fund XI’s fundraising to reach about $16bn of capital.
