Casey’s General Stores is losing one of its veteran executives.
The convenience store retailer said that Bill Walljasper, senior VP and CFO, will retire later this year. He will remain as CFO through the end of the company’s fiscal 2020 year-end reporting and oversee a transition period with his successor. A search for a new finance head will begin immediately.
Walljasper joined Casey’s in 1990 as a risk manager and his career developed through leadership roles in risk management, human resources and eventually VP of human resources in 1998. In 2003, he was named VP of finance, and senior VP and CFO in 2004.
“Bill’s leadership and service spent building this company, its finance organization and investor relations has helped Casey’s grow and deliver value to our shareholders,” said Darren Rebelez, president and CEO, Casey’s General Stores, which operates more than 2,100 stores in 16 states. “We are deeply appreciative of Bill’s dedication and the positive, long-lasting impact he’s made on Casey’s, our team members and in the communities we serve.”
