MedCaths Hinton out as CFO; Parker takes over in interim
Ed French, MedCaths president and CEO, said in an interview that Hintons departure was MedCaths decision. We have the right to have a no-cause termination, and thats what we did, French said, adding that the move is effective immediately. Hinton was not available for an interview.
Jeff is a very good CFO, and Im going to miss working with him, French said. His departure gives us an opportunity to recruit a hospital-trained CFO, which French said the company has not had in a decade. MedCath has employed an executive search firm to identify a permanent CFO.
