People in the News: CORRECTION: William Creech

Premium

The story has been corrected to reflect the fact that William Creech was let go, as opposed to fired.

Vermillion this week let go William Creech, formerly vice president of sales and marketing. His termination was the result of changes in the company's sales and marketing organization that eliminated his position, Vermillion noted. Creech was rehired as a consultant effective Jan 6, 2014 and will provide consultation to Vermillion on an as needed basis through Feb. 5.
