Just two days after officially stepping into the role, Moderna’s new chief financial officer, Jorge Gomez, is leaving the company.

Wednesday’s announcement comes after Gomez’s former employer, Dentsply Sirona Inc., disclosed an ongoing internal investigation related to financial reporting.
His departure from Moderna is effective immediately.
“The Company cannot predict the duration or outcome of the investigation,” the firm added. “As a result, the Company has not yet finalized its financial statements or its assessment of the impact of the investigation on its historical financial statements or for the financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and is therefore unable to file the Form 10-Q on a timely basis. The Company is working toward filing the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable, but does not expect to be in a position to file it within five calendar days following the prescribed due date.”
Gomez will receive 12 months’ salary totaling $700,000 and COBRA coverage for 12 months in connection with his departure. He will also forfeit his signing bonus, eligibility for relocation reimbursements, bonus eligibility and his eligibility for new hire equity awards that were recently disclosed in Moderna’s 8-K filing on April 11.
