  • HearMe Out: Linda Palmor stepped down as CFO of voice- over IP technology company HearMe. According to a company statement, Palmor’s resignation, along with that of CEO Rob Csongor, is part of a “wind down process.” Translation: the company is being shuttered. According to Csongor, “the deepening turmoil in the industry has significantly affected our revenue visibility and ability to predict the course of the business. With no viable alternatives, we felt the best decision was to develop a plan for an orderly disposition of HearMe’s assets with the objective of returning any remaining capital to the stockholders.” Corporate controller Joyce Keshmiry will serve as CFO during all this disposing and returning.

  • PartsBase Inc. promoted controller Mark Weicher to the CFO post. Weicher, who previously was CFO at Intermedia Marketing Solutions Inc. replaces Michael Siegel at PartsBase. Siegel is leaving the Boca Raton, Fla.-based e-commerce service provider to join HEICO Aerospace Holdings, a subsidiary of HEICO Corp. Siegel will serve as senior vice president of finance and administration at HEICO Aerospace.
  • Bonnie Reyes is moving into new digs as CFO of DeMattia Group. According to a company statement, Reyes was CFO of an unspecified software company before joining the Plymouth, Mich.-based real-estate developer.
