“I am excited to welcome Greg as our CFO and look forward to drawing from his broad biotech experience in capital finance and strategic transactions, and deep knowledge of our business,” said Bill Lundberg, M.D., President, Chief Executive Officer of Merus. “Greg brings industry-leading financial acumen and has been a great source of insight on the Merus Board of Directors. I’m looking forward to working with him full time as we continue to advance the Company through the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.”
