NEW YORK, March 12 - Luminex may pick a new money man as early as next week.
An official at the Austin, Texas-based bead-array developer told GenomeWeb on Wednesday that the company's board may name a new chief financial officer at a meeting next week.
Luminex said in a terse memo released on March 4 that CFO Frank Reeves had left the company after less than one year on the job. In an interview today, Randy Marfin, vice president of business development, said the abrupt departure was due to personal rather than performance-related reasons.
Harriss Currie, acting controller and treasure at Luminex, has been interim CFO, Marvin said. Currie, 40, who has been helped by Kevin McNamara, a corporate consultant, will likely get the nod to take over Reeves' post full time.
"Harriss has been acting as a CFO and it's quite possible that he could be the CFO," said Marvin.
