It is swapping its chief financial officer about four months after being appointed as its new CEO, a move that comes as the fitness equipment maker suffers ongoing losses.

The New York-based home exercise equipment company said Monday that Liz Coddington will serve as its chief financial officer starting June 13. Peloton said current chief financial officer Jill Woodworth has decided to leave after more than four years with the company.

Peloton said Ms Woodworth will remain with the company as an advisor on an interim basis to help prepare the financial results for the 2022 fiscal year.

Ms. Coddington most recently served as Vice President of Finance for Amazon Web Services, and

Ms Coddington joined Peloton as the company deals with sagging consumer demand after facing issues with its ability to meet orders, which surged during the early stages of the pandemic. An increase in demand for Peloton bikes prompted the company to set up a million-square-foot plant in Wood County, Ohio, last year.

and Netflix. The company also cut 2,800 jobs amid falling demand for exercise equipment. Mr. Foley has been closely associated with the company’s growth phase after its public offering and increased revenue early in the pandemic.

Rohit Kulkarni, managing director of research and equity trading firm MKM Partners LLC, said the change in the CFO seat makes sense given the ongoing restructuring under Mr McCarthy’s leadership.

“As the new CEO makes his mark on the organization’s structure and alignment with where he wants the company to go, these changes aren’t entirely surprising,” he said.

With Peloton’s fiscal year ending on June 30, Ms Coddington will very quickly be “under the microscope of a larger investor,” with the company expected to release fiscal year guidance upon joining, Mr. Kulkarni said. “It will be a difficult task to provide this new guidance.”
