Tellabs Nabs a New CFO in the Nick of Time

You have to hand it to Tellabs (UNKNOWN: TLAB.DL  ) -- they work fast.

Late last month, the networking equipment maker had to scramble when its acting chief financial officer, Tom Minichiello, announced plans to retire on July 12 to become the new CFO at Westell Technologies (NASDAQ: WSTL  ) . On Friday, though, just as the deadline was happening, Tellabs announced that it has found a replacement.

Tellabs is bringing in audit firm Crowe Horwath partner Larry Rieger to take Minichiello's old job. Strangely, though, despite praising Rieger's "deep expertise in finance, plus more than a decade of experience working with our finance team," Tellabs named him only "acting" CFO, suggesting this appointment, too, may be only temporary.

In related news, the company announced that it has promoted finance director Michael Miles to the position of chief accounting officer -- and this appointment, at least, appears to be permanent.
