Wes Edwards, MBA, CPA, has been appointed chief financial officer at Metrics Inc. Mr. Edwards has 15 years of corporate and military experience in finance, accounting, supply chain management and pricing. He will oversee the company’s financial, logistical and human resources operations.

At MBM, Mr. Edwards was responsible for a team of finance, accounting and information technology professionals supporting all aspects of financial analysis and execution, cash and risk management, internal control and external GAAP compliance.
“Wes has significant expertise when it comes to operating in public companies, along with a deep appreciation for organizational integrity and performance, which makes his coming onboard at Metrics timely and useful,” said Phil Hodges, president of Metrics. “I know he’ll apply his knowledge in ways that help protect the company’s assets and deliver superior financial results.”
