Broadcast graphics company ChyronHego Corp. Tuesday announced the appointment of Carl Blandino as its chief financial officer.

The move comes two weeks after the stock was delisted from the Nasdaq Global Market after the Melville company's $120 million acquisition by San Francisco private equity firm Vector Capital.

Blandino succeeds Dawn Johnston, who had been serving as the interim chief financial officer. She will continue as vice president, finance.

The previous CFO, Jerry Kieliszak, left the company along with the former CEO Michael Wellesley-Wesley at the end of 2013 following the merger of Long Island's Chyron with Sweden-based Hego.

Before joining ChyronHego, Blandino served as CFO of Diligent Board Member Services, a Manhattan-based maker of software tools for corporate directors.

ChyronHego employs about 80 on Long Island, 100 nationwide and 200 globally.
