(DuBois, PA).
Davis will continue to report to Bob Bunting, president & CEO, who made the announcement.
“Jana is a trusted leader who, as chief financial officer, consistently delivered results in financial management, corporate strategy development, operational efficiencies, and people development,” said Bunting. “I can think of no one better to ensure operational excellence and drive our continued market leadership. This addition of a COO to our executive management team greatly adds to our capacity to implement our growth strategy and allows me to focus on broader strategic issues.”
A search for a new chief financial officer will begin immediately. Bunting’s chief financial officer will manage division controllers and human resources.
“I’m proud to take another step within Bunting Magnetics,” said Davis. “I look forward to this new role and helping the company take its next stage of growth.”
Davis has over two decades of experience in business and financial management in the aerospace, printing, media and manufacturing industries.

She is Certified Public Accountant and Certified Management Accountant. Prior to joining Bunting Magnetics Co. in June 2011, Davis was CFO for McCormick-Armstrong, a printing company located in Wichita, KS.
