BATESVILLE, Ind., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. ( HRC), announced the appointment of James R. Giertz to its Board of Directors. Giertz is currently Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of H.B. Fuller Company, a $1.4 billion formulator and marketer of adhesives, sealants, paints and other specialty chemical products. Previously, Giertz held executive financial and operating positions with GMAC Rescap, Donaldson Company and General Motors.

"Jim possesses a valuable combination of financial and operational experience and skills," said Rolf A. Classon, chairman of the Board of Directors for Hill-Rom.

Upon returning to GM, he quickly moved up the ranks of the highly respected GM treasury organization, ultimately becoming Treasurer of GM Canada. He was later named General Motors' Assistant Treasurer at their New York headquarters. He was then recruited to the CFO position at Donaldson Company, and later assumed a senior operating role in charge of all commercial and industrial products, with global responsibility for six autonomous business units. Giertz joined H.B. Fuller, his present employer, as CFO in 2008.

Giertz holds an MBA from Harvard University and a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University.

"We are pleased to have a business leader of Jim's depth and breadth in both financial and operational matters. His blend of financial acumen and business experience at large industrial enterprises will allow him to immediately provide significant contributions to an already strong and independent board," commented Peter H. Soderberg, president and Chief Executive Officer for Hill-Rom.
