CareDx: Peter Maag, Reg Seeto, and Michael Goldberg

CareDx said it has completed its transition from Peter Maag to Reginald Seeto as CEO.

Concurrent with Seeto's appointment as president and CEO in November 2020, Maag had agreed to serve as executive chairman of the company's board of directors to facilitate an orderly transition. Now that this transition is complete, Maag will step down as executive chairman but will continue to serve as a member of CareDx's board. Michael Goldberg, CareDx's lead independent director, will resume his prior role as independent chair, a position he previously held from 2011 to 2019.
