AmerisourceBergen Corporation recently announced that its Board of Directors has elected Michael D. DiCandilo, 44, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective immediately. DiCandilo, who was previously senior vice president and chief financial officer of the Company, will continue to report to R. David Yost, AmerisourceBergen’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Mike’s election as executive vice president is recognition of his outstanding contributions to AmerisourceBergen, and the expectation that he will continue to play a significant leadership role in driving the Company’s performance,” said Yost.
Prior to being named senior vice president and chief financial officer of AmerisourceBergen in 2002, DiCandilo was appointed Vice President and Corporate Controller in 2001, shortly after the merger of AmeriSource Health and Bergen Brunswig. He joined the former AmeriSource 15 years ago as Regional Vice President of Finance for the company’s Northeast Region. Five years later, DiCandilo was appointed AmeriSource’s Vice President and Controller. Prior to joining AmeriSource, he served eight years with Ernst & Young in a variety of accounting management positions.
DiCandilo is a Certified Public Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated summa cum laude.
