Barely a week after former Glaxo executive Chris Viehbacher assumed the role of CEO, Sanofi-Aventis announced that Jean-Claude Leroy, the company’s executive vp of finance and legal, has left the company. In a short statement, the company noted that his position will be filled by two people, reporting directly to Viehbacher; they are CFO Laurence Debroux, and Karen Linehan, general counsel. So far, no one has commented as to the reason for Leroy’s departure.
