Midsize broker adds president to CFO's title


Hylant Group Inc. has named Bill Pridgeon president in addition to his role as chief financial officer.

Mr. Pridgeon will be responsible for the management and direction of the operational and financial functions of the firm, the Toledo, Ohio-based broker said Tuesday in a statement. He is also a member of Hylant's executive leadership team and board of directors, Hylant said in the statement.

Previously, Mr. Pridgeon, based in Toledo, was executive vice president and CFO. No one held the role of president before his appointment, according to a Hylant spokeswoman.

“Bill has been an asset to Hylant for many years, and we’re honored he accepted the role of president,” Mike Hylant, CEO of Hylant, said in the statement. “He is well-respected in the industry and has the leadership strength we need going forward. He is committed to our clients, our employees and the community.”
