To assist in an orderly transition, she will continue to serve in her current role for a period expected to conclude no earlier than March 30 and no later than June 30.

Lutey will receive her current base salary and benefits and at the end of the transition period, a gross lump sum payment equal to $600,000, according to the Green Bay, Wis.-based company.

One financial analyst who follows the company expected a smooth transition, and that the position would be filled from outside the company.

“We believe the hiring of an external candidate is likely, particularly one with public company experience, given the new responsibilities for [Schneider’s] chief financial after Ms. Lutey helped successfully transition the company through its 2017 IPO. We expect a seamless transition to a new chief financial officer after one is appointed,” Benjamin Hartford, with R.W. Baird & Co., wrote in a note to investors.
