Handspring names new CFO

Handspring announced on Tuesday the appointment of William Slakey as its chief financial officer. Slakey will take over for Bernard Whitney, who left the Mountain View, Calif.-based device maker in July to spend more time with his family. Slakey's post as vice president and CFO becomes effective Sept. 30. The executive joins Handspring from WJ Communications, a maker of RF semiconductors, where he was also CFO. Slakey has held financial roles at Palm--when it was a division of 3Com--and Apple Computer.
