NYSE-listed Hillenbrand has appointed Richard Dudley as its new head of IR.

Currently director of financial planning and analysis, Dudley joined the Baseville, Indiana-headquartered firm in 2014, having previously held several senior positions at Hillenbrand spinoff Hill-Rom, including director of corporate development and strategy and CFO for the respiratory care division. Prior to this, he worked at Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, serving in various financial roles.

Dudley graduated in accounting from the University of Miami and also holds an MBA from the Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.

‘Rich has been a key member of my team over the past few years,’ comments CFO Kristina Cerniglia in a company release. ‘In addition to his finance leadership responsibilities, he has been deeply involved in investor communications, including our quarterly earnings cycle and the planning and execution of our recent investor day meeting.

‘As a result of his experience and knowledge of Hillenbrand's businesses and strategy, Rich is in an ideal position to deepen Hillenbrand’s relationships within the financial community and enhance our overall investor relations program.’
