RONKONKOMA, NY – February 9, 2021:  Long Island-based electronics distributor, BJG Electronics Group, names Tom Pawluk as new Chief Financial Officer. Pawluk is a highly regarded finance leader, most recently serving as CFO of Tate’s Bake Shop.

During this period, Tate’s was sold to a US private equity firm, then to the world’s leading biscuit company, Mondelez Global.

In addition to his contributions at several high-growth companies throughout his career, Pawluk possesses outstanding finance and accounting credentials including an MBA from Dowling College, Certification as a CPA, and recognition as a Chartered Global Management Accountant with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
