  • Thanks and good wishes for Frost
  • Mike Bourque taking over

(exechange) — Peabody, Massachusetts, July 13, 2017 — Mark Frost, finance chief of Analogic, leaves. It is an abrupt change. As announced by Analogic Corporation in a news release and in a regulatory filing published on Thursday, July 13, 2017, Mark T. Frost leaves the post as Chief Financial Officer at the healthcare and security technology company in a surprising move after less than two years on the job, effective immediately.

Frost’s duties are taken over by Mike Bourque, most recently corporate controller at Analogic Corporation.

“Position Analogic for renewed success”

A reason for the sudden change was not explicitly given. Fred Parks, president and CEO, said: “We are confident in Mike’s financial leadership as we position Analogic for renewed success.”

Precise information about the future plans of Frost was not immediately available.
