InnerWorkings Inc., Chicago, a leading global marketing execution firm, has named Jeffrey P. Pritchett as the company's new executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective August 2015.
Pritchett joins InnerWorkings from Cerberus Operating and Advisory Company, LLC (COAC), an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., where he served as a senior operating executive since May 2013 and as head of the finance/CFO practice since early 2015.

Pritchett also held treasury, strategy and international financial roles of increasing responsibility at Delphi, a global automotive parts manufacturing company.
"Jeff is a dynamic and strategic leader who will help us to further strengthen our financial organization and processes in ways that support our next phase of growth and profitability," said Eric D. Belcher, chief executive officer of InnerWorkings. "Jeff's background and proven track record will make him a valuable member of our leadership team."
"My discussions with Eric and the InnerWorkings' board of directors have given me the utmost confidence in the company's strong growth prospects as well as its strategy, leadership and commitment to building shareholder value," Pritchett commented. "I am proud to join this great company and look forward to working with Eric and the team to ensure InnerWorkings continues to deliver profitable growth for all of our stakeholders."
Ryan Spohn will remain InnerWorkings' interim CFO through the completion of the company's second quarter filings, at which point he will resume his role as senior vice president and controller.
"On behalf of the Board and the entire management team, I would like to thank Ryan for his strong leadership and steady hand over the past six months," Belcher added. "He has done an exceptional job, and Jeff and I look forward to his continued contributions and leadership as part of our now even stronger financial team."
