The Wrong Prescription

Mylan Labs CFO Hanson and president Moldin resign over corporate-culture matters. StaffJune 12, 2001

Drug maker Mylan Laboratories Inc. said president and COO Richard Moldin and CFO John Hanson resigned because of differences in opinion on corporate-culture issues.

Both executives joined the company in 2000. Molding joined as president and COO in April and brought in Hanson as finance chief in November. Though the company did not indicate in its statement what the matters of corporate culture were, those who follow the company say they are related to branding and long-term company goals.

The Pittsburgh-based firm said former executive Clarence Todd, who resigned in 1999, will return as interim president and COO. Gary Sphar, who is now VP of finance of Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the company’s biggest division, will step in as interim CFO.
