Jorge Gomez, former Moderna CFO

Mod­er­na blind­sided by in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­to for­mer CFO Jorge Gomez, com­pa­ny says

It’s been days since Mod­er­na sent its new CFO Jorge Gomez pack­ing — af­ter just one day on the job — over an in­ves­ti­ga­tion launched by his for­mer em­ploy­er. Al­though that probe was ini­ti­at­ed back in March, Mod­er­na says it had no idea un­til last week.

Mod­er­na told End­points News on Mon­day that it was un­aware of Dentsply’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­volv­ing Gomez un­til it was pub­licly dis­closed on May 10. The news, first re­port­ed by the Wall Street Jour­nal, comes just five days af­ter Dentsply an­nounced an in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­to “cer­tain fi­nan­cial re­port­ing mat­ters” re­lat­ed to Gomez’s time at the den­tal equip­ment com­pa­ny.
