Online electronics retailer eCost.com has a new interim chief financial officer. On Sept. 13, eCost announced that its current CFO and executive vice president, Elizabeth Murray, was resigning to pursue other interests. She is being replaced on an interim basis by Brent Hirokawa, eCost’s vice president of accounting and controller.
Hirokawa joined eCost.com in April after serving as senior director of accounting for DIRECTV. Before joining DIRECTV, Hirokawa was vice president and controller of A&M; Records.
A permanent search for a new CFO is underway, the company says. Murray`s resignation was not related to the company`s accounting practices or financial statement disclosures, eCost says.
