Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer
Randy is more than just a “numbers guy,” but also a collaborative and results-driven leader who has an uncompromising commitment to excellence and integrity. His day-to-day approach to life and work has made him a highly respected leader and has allowed him to rise steadily through the ranks of our organization since he joined in 1999.
Randy was named executive vice president and chief financial officer in April 2014. He has overall responsibility for the corporate and operating finance functions, which include the corporate controller, financial planning and analysis, treasury, tax, risk management, audit and financial compliance. He also leads our strategic planning group.
Randy began his ScottsMiracle-Gro career in 1999 as director and assistant controller for the Ortho® business team. Other assignments have included director of Roundup® finance, senior director of corporate financial planning & analysis and vice president of North America finance. He was named senior vice president of North America finance in January 2008 and then became senior vice president of global operating finance responsible for overall leadership of all finance roles supporting the company's business segments.
Before joining ScottsMiracle-Gro, Randy was employed by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Pittsburgh and Columbus, and his clients included ScottsMiracle-Gro. He earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from The Ohio State University.
Randy currently serves on the boards of directors for TruGreen, Turning Point and The Hagedorn Legacy Foundation. He is an avid reader and enjoys traveling and bike riding with his family. His absolute favorite thing to do is support his children with his wife at their school and sports events.
Randy’s favorite memories at ScottsMiracle-Gro involve his family––when he brought his daughter to “bring your kid to work day” and gave her a tour of the arboretum, and when he took his son to a Scotts-sponsored Major League All-Star Game and Home Run Derby, where his son shagged flies in the outfield.
