(Reuters) – Moderna Inc said on Wednesday its newly appointed chief financial officer, Jorge Gomez, departed from the drugmaker after his former employer Dentsply Sirona Inc disclosed an internal probe into financial reporting.

Gomez’s appointment was announced in April and came into effect on Monday. Moderna said he departed on Tuesday.

Moderna said recently retired CFO David Meline will return to the role.

Gomez will receive 12 months’ salary, totaling $700,000, and forfeit his signing bonus and bonus eligibility.
