Pfiz­er vet Ger­mano makes quick ex­it from In­trex­on as hands-on bil­lion­aire Kirk re­or­ga­nizes biotech

When Geno Ger­mano left a se­nior post at Pfiz­er and lat­er signed on as pres­i­dent of In­trex­on 10 months ago, he start­ed down a path that he was told led straight to the CEO’s job. In­stead, he wound up at the ex­it door on Fri­day, leav­ing bil­lion­aire Ran­dal “RJ” Kirk at the helm of the com­pa­ny he found­ed, re­or­ga­niz­ing the com­plex biotech side of the busi­ness.

Ger­mano had been head of the glob­al phar­ma busi­ness at Pfiz­er when he was sud­den­ly odd man out in a planned merg­er with Al­ler­gan, which al­so ul­ti­mate­ly nev­er hap­pened. Kirk wel­comed him with open arms, telling the world that Ger­mano would be the next chief for day-to-day op­er­a­tions $XON as he stepped up to the ex­ec­u­tive chair­man’s role.
