In his new role, Weil will be responsible for overseeing the company’s global finance organization and managing all financial operations, including budgeting, forecasting, accounting, tax, treasury and financial reporting. He also is expected to work closely with the executive team to “develop and implement financial strategies that support the company’s growth and profitability goals,” PIP said in a news release.

“Sean has been a key member of our finance team for many years and has been involved in the integration of over a dozen acquisitions during that time” said Curt Holtz, President & CEO of PIP. “His breadth of financial skills coupled with his deep operational knowledge of our business make him uniquely suited for this position as we continue to expand and grow our head-to-toe safety solutions around the world.”

Prior to joining PIP, Weil most recently worked as Vice President of Finance at Ketchum PR.

“I am honored to be promoted to the position of CFO and excited to take on this new challenge,” Weil said. “I look forward to working with the executive team and the entire finance team to help drive the company’s continued growth and success.”

On May 16, PIP announced that it had acquired SM Heinrich Krämer GmbH & Co. KG, a manufacturer of safety footwear, functional clothing and workwear based in Lippstadt, Germany.
