Acuson president to leave company

Acuson of Mountain View, CA, announced that company president and director Daniel Dugan resigned effective March 1. Former Acuson president Robert Gallagher will come out of retirement to serve as president and chief operating officer until sometime in June, when a permanent replacement for Dugan will be named. Gallagher, 56, previously was president and chief operating officer.

Dugan’s departure appears unrelated to the company’s recent financial performance. The ultrasound vendor posted revenues of $135 million for the fourth quarter of 1999, an increase of 10% compared with the fourth quarter of 1998, and $475.9 million for the year, compared to $455 million in 1998.
