Murphy will step into job in April, and after a period of transition, Ehrenheim will retire at the end of July. Ehrenheim was a mechanical engineer with Pharmacia, which was acquired by Amersham in 1997, which in turn was acquired by GE. Murphy was CEO of Whatman, which was acquired by GE Healthcare in 2008. He also has worked at Janssen Pharmaceutical, at Vericore, and at Novartis.
