Barnes & Noble CFO Resigns

Barnes & Noble chief financial officer Joseph Lombardi stepped down today.

VP, corporate controller Allen Lindstrom will serve as interim CFO and Lombardi will act as a non-officer employee during the transition. He joined the company in 2007 as corporate controller. Before joining the bookseller, he served as CFO at Liberty Travel.

Lombardi had this comment: “I could not be more proud of the nine years I’ve spent at Barnes & Noble working alongside an outstanding management team … In the last two years alone, it has been exciting to see Barnes & Noble transform itself from a leading bookseller to a leading retailer of content and digital media. I look forward to assisting the company during this transition period until a new CFO is appointed.”
