VSE Corp. Appoints Tarang Sharma as Interim CFO

ALEXANDRIA, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VSE Corporation (NASDAQ: VSEC), a leading provider of aftermarket distribution and repair services, announced today the appointment of Tarang Sharma to interim Chief Financial Officer effective May 27, 2024. Mr. Sharma, VSE’s Vice President, Controller and Corporate Development, succeeds Steve Griffin, who is departing the Company to pursue an opportunity outside of the Aerospace industry. VSE has initiated a search for a CFO with the assistance of an executive search firm. Mr. Griffin will remain with the Company through the end of May and then serve as a consultant for a period of three months to ensure a smooth transition of his responsibilities.


“Since joining VSE in late 2020, Steve has been a tremendous asset to VSE and a trusted partner to me during the first phase of our business transformation,” stated John Cuomo, President and CEO of VSE Corporation. “Over the past four years, we have successfully repositioned VSE as a leading aftermarket distributor and repair provider and set the foundation for this business to capitalize on the significant growth opportunities that lie ahead. I want to thank Steve for his leadership, support, and significant contributions and wish him and his family all the best as they embark on a new chapter in a new city and new industry.”

“It has been a true privilege to work alongside John and the rest of the talented team at VSE as we transformed VSE into a world-class pure-play aftermarket solutions provider with a strengthened financial profile,” said Steve Griffin. “As I depart VSE for my next opportunity, I know that the company is well-positioned for continued success. I am confident that Tarang and the entire finance organization are well prepared to support VSE’s next phase of growth, delivering for both customers and shareholders.”

Mr. Cuomo continued, “As we remain steadfast in our commitment to executing VSE’s strategic plan, I have full confidence in Tarang and his ability to lead VSE’s financial operations on an interim basis. Tarang joined VSE in 2015 and has been instrumental in all aspects of our business transformation, including his work on recent acquisitions and divestitures, establishing corporate and financial foundations, and building out treasury and financial planning and analysis organizations. His extensive corporate knowledge, coupled with his significant experience in finance and business operations, is pivotal as we continue to pursue our long-term objectives.”

“At VSE, we benefit from a deep bench of talent and a strong succession planning process across our organization. Earlier this year, Michael Perlman, Vice President of Investor Relations and Communications, assumed responsibility for the treasury organization in addition to his investor relations responsibilities. Our ability to transition work within the finance organization to qualified personnel is critical to our success as we continue to scale this business,” concluded Mr. Cuomo.

The Company will provide additional commentary on the fiscal year 2024 update, along with first quarter results, during its upcoming earnings call tomorrow, May 9, 2024.
