Finish Line announced Tuesday that Edward W. Wilhelm, a former vice president at Borders and Kmart, has been named EVP and CFO at Finish Line, effective March 30.

The company’s president and COO, Steven J. Schneider, has been serving as interim CFO since November 2008, when Kevin Wampler left to pursue a similar position at another company.

Wilhelm most recently served as CFO (among other positions) at Borders Group Inc., and prior to that was VP-controller at Kmart Corp.

“Ed is a seasoned retail veteran and financial leader with extensive expertise in strategic planning, business development, real estate, finance and investor relations,” said Glenn S. Lyon, CEO of Finish Line, in a statement. “I am confident that Ed is the ideal choice for CFO as we move forward with our strategic plans.”
