Digirad Names Jeffry R. Keyes as CFO
Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today announced that Jeffry R. Keyes has been named Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately. Keyes will report directly to Chief Executive Officer Todd P. Clyde.
Keyes, 39, a resident of Carlsbad, California, has more than 15 years of experience in all areas of finance and accounting, including financial modeling and forecasting, SEC compliance reporting, mergers and acquisitions and strategic planning. Keyes has served in key accounting financial management roles at two fast-growing medical device companies and, most recently, since August 2011, he has been Corporate Controller of San Diego-based Sapphire Energy, a developer of alternative energy solutions.
"Jeff has demonstrated an ability to manage financial teams and contribute strategically to the business in a variety of different corporate settings," Clyde said. "We all look forward to working closely with Jeff during this very exciting time for our Company."
Keyes replaces Clyde, who had assumed the CFO responsibilities on an interim basis in April following the resignation of Richard B. Slansky, who left to accept another executive position.
Prior to working for Sapphire Energy, Keyes was employed by San Diego-based Advanced BioHealing, Inc., a company focused on regenerative medicine, as Corporate Controller. For the two prior years, he held the position of Senior Director, External Reporting and Technical Accounting at San Diego-based CareFusion, a $3.5 billion publicly held spin-off from Cardinal Health, where he oversaw SEC reporting, accounting policy creation and maintenance and oversaw and performed analysis, due diligence and accounting for multiple acquisitions and dispositions, as well as review of business models related to integrating new businesses.
