Digirad Corporation (DRAD) Announces Departure of CFO Richard B. Slansky; Initiates Search for Replacement


3/29/2012 9:21:31 AM

POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2012) - Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today announced that Richard B. Slansky has resigned his position as Chief Financial Officer effective April 20, 2012, in order to accept another executive position. Digirad CEO Todd P. Clyde, who had formerly served as Digirad CFO for six years, will assume the CFO responsibilities on an interim basis until a new CFO is identified.

Clyde said, "The Board and I appreciate all of Richard's excellent work and financial leadership over the past three years and wish him well in his new role. His high standards and tough expense control were an instrumental part of our successful emergence from the very challenging regulatory and reimbursement environment that descended on the Company shortly after his arrival. Our financial position is very solid as we look to the future."

Clyde continued, "We have already taken the initial steps to institute a search to find the ideal CFO candidate that will help Digirad as we enter the next phase of corporate development and pursue new growth opportunities to enhance value for our shareholders."
