Northvale, NJ (June 11, 2014) — Industrial Rivet & Fastener Company, a global manufacturer, distributor and importer of quality rivets and fasteners, today announced that Taryn Goodman has become a full-time member of the company's executive team in the role of Vice President of Finance.

Ms. Goodman, who began working for the company as Assistant Treasurer in 2012, brings a wealth of financial experience with her. In May 2014 she earned a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to this, she worked at Barclays Capital as an Investment Banking Associate in the Risk Solutions Group.

"I really enjoyed my time in investment banking and felt like I learned a lot, but at some point I realized I wanted to work on the other side of the transaction," explains Ms. Goodman. "I felt the best choice for me was to come home and help my own family's company continue to grow and prosper."

Industrial Rivet is a fourth generation business, now with five Goodman family members forming the foundation of the company's expertise. This includes Ms. Goodman, as well as Bill Goodman, President, Steven Sherman, Vice President, Joanne Goodman Sherman, Secretary/Treasurer, and Allen Goodman, Accounts Receivable.

According to Ms. Goodman, she didn't originally see herself joining the family company. "I was interested in medicine, and only stumbled across my love for business when I was at Williams College where I ended up with a double major in Biology and Economics. Believe me, I was as surprised as anyone - but today it feels like I am exactly where I belong, and I am really excited to be here."

Ms. Goodman will focus on the administrative and finance side, working closely with her cousin, Steven Sherman, who has been with Industrial Rivet for 17 years. "With my industry knowledge and Taryn's finance savvy, we compliment one another perfectly," Mr. Sherman says. "Together we know we will be able to accomplish everything we want to for Industrial Rivet."
