Celsion Announces Jeffrey W. Church Reappointed To CFO

Stocks in this article: CLSN

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Celsion Corporation (Nasdaq: CLSN) announced today that Jeffrey W. Church, Senior Vice President, will resume the role of Chief Financial Officer, a position he held prior to his promotion to Senior Vice President in July 2011.  In this position he will retain responsibility for corporate investor relations.  Mr. Church joined Celsion in July 2010 as Vice President and CFO.  Mr. Church's re-appointment will be effective immediately.  Mr. Church has more than 30 years of experience in financial management, the majority of which are as a Chief Financial Officer for publicly traded life science companies. 

This announcement follows the resignation of Gregory Weaver, the Company's Chief Financial Officer who, after 7 years of service to Celsion, will be pursuing other professional opportunities consistent with his extensive experience in commercial and development stage companies.  Mr. Weaver's resignation, which is effective June 30, 2013, includes a transition plan designed to ensure continuity of business operations.

Michael H. Tardugno, Celsion's President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "Greg has made many important contributions to the Company as CFO and during his six years of service as a Board Director.  We thank him for his service and wish him well in the pursuit of his new endeavors.  It's also important to note that the transition of CFO responsibilities is being made to a very capable member of our senior management team, Jeff Church, and that this restructuring is an integral part of the Company's cash conservation plans announced earlier this year.  We maintain our commitment to the efficient use of our financial and human resources as we enter a pivotal time for the Company."
