The CFO of the engineering firm Merrick & Company has died in a hang-gliding accident, the company said in an announcement today.

Mark Henline, who was the senior vice president and CFO of Merrick, died Sept. 7 at St. Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood. He was 57.

His colleagues at the Greenwood Village-based firm said Henline was the consummate financial professional — doing everything by the numbers, but outside of the office he had a sense of adventure.

Henline joined the company in 2006 and became the firm’s first Chief Financial Officer in 2008. He also served on the company’s finance and stock committees.
