Briggs Names New SVP & CFO

Briggs & Stratton has announced that Kristina Cerniglia has joined the company as Senior Vice President & Chief Financial Officer. She joins Briggs & Stratton after serving eight years at Hillenbrand, Inc. as Senior Vice President & Chief Financial Officer. Prior to Hillenbrand, Inc., she spent 23 years in the financial organizations at Stanley Black & Decker and United Technologies Corp.

“Kristina has demonstrated that she is a transformational leader with the ability to influence results across an entire enterprise,” says Steve Andrews, President & CEO at Briggs & Stratton. Cerniglia is succeeding Mark Schwertfeger who served as the SVP & CFO.

In September 2020, KPS Capital Partners, through a newly formed affiliate, acquired most of the assets of Briggs & Stratton and appointed Steve Andrews as President & CEO. Since that time, the company has added David Dooley, Vice President and General Manager of the Allmand business; Chris Mapes, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Brian Hazelton, Senior Vice President & President of the power business, and Michelle Kumbier, Senior Vice President & President of the turf & consumer products business as new direct reports of Andrews. The addition of Cerniglia further strengthens the Briggs & Stratton executive leadership team and reinforces a commitment to redefining Briggs & Stratton as a new company with a strong future.
