Orexigen Therapeutics, a biopharmaceutical company focused on the treatment of obesity, has announced the upcoming resignation of Graham Cooper, senior vice president (SVP), finance, chief financial officer (CFO) and treasurer. Cooper, who has been with Orexigen for over four years, has decided to leave for personal reasons. He will remain in his current role at Orexigen until the reporting of the company’s year-end results and the filing of its annual report on Form 10-K with the SEC for the year ended 31 December 2010.
The company will name Jay Hagan, SVP, corporate development and strategy, as acting-CFO and transition the financial operation responsibilities to him.
