PROVO, UT — April 11, 2017 — CircusTrix, the largest developer and operator of extreme recreation parks in the world, has hired Steve Chesnut, former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Overstock.com, as its first CFO.
The move comes during a time of considerable growth for CircusTrix—the company most recently announced its acquisition of Rockin’ Jump, a leading trampoline park franchise. In January 2017, CircusTrix announced a private equity deal with Palladium Partners, the first of its kind within the indoor extreme recreation industry. As the newest C-level executive, Chesnut brings decades of finance and operations experience to his new role.
“I’ve spent a lot of time working in online and big box retail. The experiential retail bend of its business makes CircusTrix a dream job for me,” Chesnut said. "With the recent private equity deal and acquisition, my first tasks will be to manage and improve the financial operations infrastructure to facilitate rapid growth and expansion. I’m looking forward to it."
Chesnut’s career spans decades and several notable organizations, including The Home Depot, Target Stores, and Overstock.com, overseeing multiple evolutions of retailer customer experiences, preferences and marketplace dynamics.
"Steve has been a public-company CFO and will bring a critical strategic perspective to our executive team," said Case Lawrence, CEO of CircusTrix." He has made every place he's worked at better, and he’s no stranger to uncharted territory in retail. CircusTrix’s current position is fast-paced and rapidly evolving, and we're confident that Steve is the perfect match to help us navigate the future of extreme indoor recreation.”
