Ryder System announced the appointment of Cristina Gallo-Aquino as vice president and controller. In this position, Gallo-Aquino serves as the company’s principal accounting officer and is responsible for corporate accounting and planning, internal and external financial reporting and vehicle administration, as well as accounting for insurance, benefits, payroll and sales tax. In addition, Gallo-Aquino will continue to serve as a member of Ryder’s Diversity & Inclusion Council.
Prior to this appointment, Gallo-Aquino served as assistant controller, where she was responsible for Ryder’s corporate accounting, benefits accounting and payroll accounting departments. She succeeds Garcia, who was recently named executive vice president and chief financial officer of Ryder. “Cristy brings a strong combination of financial accounting expertise and more than a decade of experience working on Ryder financial matters to this important role,” Garcia says.
Gallo-Aquino began her accounting career in KPMG’s audit practice, where she spent seven years serving primarily Ryder as well as other corporate accounts. She joined Ryder from LNR Property Corp. in 2004 as director of technical accounting, and later served as director of corporate accounting and then senior director of corporate accounting.
