Sesen Bio Director Jane Pritchett Henderson Transitions to CEO Advisor Role

In this situation, it is perhaps time for investors to reflect whether the fall could be a buying opportunity or not. As it happens, the company was in the news on Tuesday after it announced that Jane Pritchett Henderson has moved one from the Board of Directors at Sesen Bio to a Chief Executive Officer Advisor role.

Henderson had been a member of the board of directors and had also been the chair of the Audit Committee of the Sesen Bio board. The company noted that she moved on from her position on the board in order to have a better chance of looking after her responsibilities that exist outside of Sesen Bio. At this point in time, she is a director at two other companies and is also employed as the Chief Financial Officer at Adagio Therapeutics.
