Moderna has found a replacement for ousted CFO Jorge Gomez, announcing Wednesday that PerkinElmer executive James Mock will be its next finance chief.

The appointment of Mock comes several months after Moderna hired and then quickly fired Gomez from the role after it became known Gomez’ former employer, dental equipment manufacturer Dentsply Sirona, was investigating “certain financial reporting matters.”

Mock has served as CFO at PerkinElmer, a large life sciences and diagnostics firm, since 2018, overseeing several small acquisitions as well as a roughly $5.3 billion takeover of antibody and reagent provider BioLegend last year. On Aug. 1, PerkinElmer announced plans to divest its food and enterprise services division to a private equity firm for almost $2.5 billion.

Prior to PerkinElmer, Mock worked for nearly two decades at General Electric. READ MORE
