Jay Roueche, Flowserve’s vice president, treasurer and investor relations, has taken on the role of interim chief financial officer (CFO), following Lee Eckert’s departure from the company.

“Jay previously served as Flowserve’s interim CFO and we are pleased that he has agreed to do so again,” said R Scott Rowe, Flowserve’s president and CEO. “With Jay’s experience and significant understanding of our business and financials, I have the utmost confidence in his ability to lead the finance operations of the enterprise as the company searches for a permanent replacement.”

Roueche has been Flowserve vice president, treasurer and investor relations since 2012 and served as interim chief financial officer from February 2017 to October 2017.

“On behalf of our board and management team, I would like to express our appreciation to Lee for being a key driver in the finance transformation and a valuable contributor to Flowserve," said Rowe. "During his tenure at Flowserve, Lee shaped many improvements focused on our continued long-term financial growth and creation of enterprise value for Flowserve and our shareholders. We wish him the very best in the next chapter in his life.”
