    New CFO at topps

    What this means in terms of product is anyone's guess.

    By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

    Topps has a new chief financial officer, according to a company announcement made Thursday.

    The company’s president and COO, Michael Brandstaedter announced that John Mueller, an executive with experience in manufacturing as well as corporate finance, will take the post beginning Monday.

    “John is a seasoned executive with a wealth of experience across consumer products, finance, and the digital space,” Brandstaedter said, “and we believe his financial and strategic skills will be an incredible resource to draw upon as we continue our growth.”


    According to Topps, Mueller comes to the company from the XO Group, where he had worked as CFO for five years. His career started with Kimberly-Clark and he spent 13 years in banking. He has an MBA from Harvard Business School with a bachelor’s in business administration from Minnesota.

    “John Mueller’s accomplishments at XO Group, the broad depth of his experience in finance and manufacturing, and his business savvy, will make him a key player in executing our vision of growth and momentum at Topps,” said Michael Eisner in a prepared statement.

    Eisner’sXThe Tornante Company and Madison Dearborn Partners purchased Topps in 2007.

    Did the previous CFO have any input into the production process?

    This move probably has minimal/no impact on the products.

    His first move should be to cut the labor over at the Topps Redemption Update Blog (http://toppscards.tumblr.com/)

    Those once a month posts (last one 2/28) must be draining resources severely.
