Dice Holdings Replaces Promoted CEO With New CFO

Two weeks after NYC-based Dice Holdings promoted Chief Financial Officer Michael Durney out of office, naming him chief executive officer of the company, Dice once again has a CFO.

On Monday, Dice announced that it has hired former BrightLine CFO John Roberts to become its own new CFO. Commenting on his replacement's hire, Durney praised Dice for his "financial thought leadership and experience" and predicted that the new CFO "will be a critical part of our success" going forward.

Roberts, who has CFOed multiple companies in the past, said in a statement on this hiring that he has followed Dice for a while, and was "impressed by their vertical strategy and strong financial position."

Dice, a provider of specialized career websites in career fairs for professionals, is profitable and posted 7% revenue growth in its most recent quarter. According to Yahoo! Finance, analysts who follow the company anticipate that Dice will continue growing its earnings at nearly 12% annually over the next five years.
