"Catherine is a deeply experienced financial executive who already knows Heska well and is highly qualified to serve as vice president and principal accounting officer," said Kevin Wilson, Heska president and CEO.

"Catherine has been a central figure in the company's accounting and finance leadership throughout 2017. We expect a seamless transition and know that Catherine's expertise will play a key role in helping us execute our plans.

"This change did not arise from any issues involving the company's financial results, which are meeting our expectations, business practices, internal controls or financial reporting procedures. We continually expect the best of ourselves to meet our goals.

“To that end, we regularly evaluate our team mix to optimize current and long-term performance. As our team strengthens, we wish the best for those departing and congratulate those advancing into new roles."

Grassman, 41, has been Heska's corporate controller since January 2017. Previously, she was with PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP for 15 years, most recently as senior manager.

Grassman is licensed in Colorado as a Certified Public Accountant and has a Masters of Accountancy and a Bachelors of Accounting.
