Changing Places

ARI, a provider of technology-enabled services that help dealers, distributors and manufacturers, promoted Darin Janecek to chief financial officer.

He brings more than 20 years of experience in finance and accounting to the position. Janecek joined Milwaukee-based ARI as director of finance in May 2009 and was promoted to vice president of finance shortly thereafter.

"We are very pleased to have Darin assume these additional responsibilities and continue his excellent track record of leadership and results that the organization has come to expect from him," said Roy Olivier, president and chief executive of ARI, in a statement.

Before he joined ARI, Janecek served as director of strategic finance at Johnson Controls Inc. in Milwaukee. He led the group responsible for the financial aspects of acquisitions, divestitures and other strategic business initiatives.

Prior to Johnson Controls, Janecek held several positions of increasing responsibility in corporate finance and consulting, primarily specializing in mergers and acquisitions, corporate financial analysis and financial due diligence.

He began his career as an auditor with Deloitte & Touche. He earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee and is a certified public accountant. He has a master's degree in business administration from Loyola University in Chicago.
