CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Cambridge-based pharmaceutical company Moderna has parted ways with its new CFO just one day into his new job.
The company said in an SEC financial filing that Chief Financial Officer Jorge Gomez "departed" the company on May 10, after Gomez's former company, Dentsply Sirona, filed a financial disclosure regarding an internal financial investigation.
Dentsply Sirona, a dental manufacturer, recently fired its CEO, and said in the filing that an investigation is underway into the company's sales and accounting practices, involving "allegations that certain and former and current members of senior management directed the company's use of these incentives and other actions to achieve compensation targets in 2021."
Gomez had also served as CFO at Dentsply Sirona, and began in the role at Moderna just a day before he was let go. Moderna says he'll be provided a severance package including one year's salary, totaling $700,000.
The company says its "recently retired" CFO, David Meline, is back in his role effective Wednesday.
