Joseph Jaeger plans to step down from his post of chief financial officer at Physicians Formula Holdings Inc., citing family reasons.

His departure will be effective May 29, and the mineral makeup firm has tapped board member Jeff Berry to serve as interim cfo. Berry — whose experience includes financial posts at Del Monte Foods and food and personal care-focused private equity firms — will resign from the board while acting as interim CFO.

Jaeger has been a critical member of Physicians Formula’s management team for five years and helped lead the company through its initial public offering in fall 2006.
