The financial chief of Moderna has already resigned one day after he started his position. In April, Jorge Gomez came over from the American dental equipment manufacturer Dentsply Sirona.
That company announced an internal investigation this week into its own financial policy, after which Gomez resigned from the corona vaccine maker.
Dentsply Sirona is investigating potential abuses related to bonuses for sellers, including the sale of dental instruments and systems to distributors. In its own words, Moderna found out that this investigation runs through a legally required notification of Dentsply Sirona to the American stock market regulator.
Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel spoke highly of his passion for sustainability when he announced Gomez as the new financial director. It would fit in well with Moderna’s ideas about corporate social responsibility.
For the time being, Gomez’s predecessor, David Meline, is taking over the duties of the financially responsible person. He was actually going to retire.
