Stern Pinball has strengthened its financial team with the appointment of a new Corporate Controller.
Brian Whitfield, a former Audit Partner at RSM U.S. LLP and Audit Senior Manager in Los Angeles and Hong Kong, brings a wealth of experience in accounting, finance, and management to the role. Stern Pinball looks to grow and expand its business with the help of Whitfield’s expertise in managing large portfolios and teams, delivering presentations, advising clients in technical accounting areas, and optimizing processes to drive growth and profitability.
“Stern is committed to investing in all areas of our business and with Brian’s reputation as a career mentor and employee leader, he is an excellent addition to our team culture,” says Nick Parfitt, Chief Financial Officer of Stern Pinball.
Stern, known for its pinball titles such as The Beatles, Star Wars, and Stranger Things, hopes to benefit from Whitfield’s expertise leading financial audits for private equity relationships and global businesses with complex operations.
Headquartered minutes from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, Stern Pinball creates, designs, engineers, manufactures, markets, and distributes a full line of terrestrial and digital pinball games, parts, accessories, and merchandise.
