Jorge Gomez, incoming Moderna CFO

Hours af­ter Pfiz­er, Mod­er­na names its own new CFO with den­tal, health­care and au­to chops

Rough­ly two hours af­ter Pfiz­er named its new CFO, its Covid-19 vac­cine com­peti­tor Mod­er­na chalked up its own new CFO with a ré­sumé steeped in health­care, den­tal equip­ment and au­to man­u­fac­tur­ing.

Mod­er­na’s cur­rent CFO, David Meline, “has de­cid­ed to re­tire,” the Spike­vax mak­er said Mon­day as Jorge Gomez takes over the com­pa­ny’s fi­nances on May 9. For 21 months, Meline led the fi­nan­cial du­ties at the Flag­ship-found­ed biotech dur­ing its mas­sive rise as one of the key play­ers in the world’s pan­dem­ic re­sponse. He’ll re­main as a con­sul­tant for the tran­si­tion.
