Two US companies on look out after CFO resignations

Two US companies are looking for a new CFO after the present incumbents resigned to pursue other career opportunities. Orchid Biosciences, the US supplier of DNA testing services, is seeking a new CFO after the resignation of Michael Spicer who is joining another biopharmaceutical company.
