Merck's Former Chief Marketing Officer Wendy Yarno Joins Animal Health Company Board

A smallish item here, but another Merck alum has landed on a public company board -- this time at a pet med company called Aratana. Here's the [California] Sacramento Bee, on it:

. . . .Jay Lichter, PhD, Aratana's Chairman of the Board, stated, "Ms. Yarno's impressive career at Merck and her deep board experience make her an excellent addition. We expect to benefit greatly from her expertise". . . .

Ms. Yarno held positions of increasing responsibility in multiple business groups during her career at Merck & Co, Inc. Most recently she served as Chief Marketing Officer, where she led the global organization responsible for supporting product commercialization across multiple therapeutic areas. At one point during her career, Ms. Yarno served as Merck's Senior Vice President of Human Resources. Ms. Yarno received an MBA from the Fox School of Business at Temple University and a B.S. in business administration from Portland State University. She also serves on the Board of Directors for St. Jude Medical, Medivation, ADial Pharmaceuticals, and PluroGen Therapeutics. . . .

So it goes. [Ed. Note: Happy Monday one and all -- Banksy will be with us for a few more days, just FYI.]
