MOCON, Inc. (Nasdaq: MOCO) today announced that Darrell Lee will retire as vice president, treasurer and CFO at the beginning of October 2014, after nearly ten years with the company. Elissa Lindsoe, former CFO of Galil Medical Ltd., has been appointed vice president, treasurer and CFO effective October 6, 2014, reporting to chairman, president and CEO Bob Demorest. Lee will stay on with the company through October 31, 2014, to aid with the transition of duties.

“For almost a decade, Darrell has served as our CFO through periods of great change, particularly MOCON’s acquisition of Dansensor in 2012,” said Demorest. “Darrell has provided MOCON with excellent leadership during his tenure and is highly respected by his colleagues, our board of directors, the financial community and our shareholders. We appreciate all he has done for MOCON and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Lindsoe brings over 20 years of financial experience to MOCON. In her role as CFO of Galil Medical Ltd., (a private equity-owned medical device manufacturing firm), she oversaw all finance, accounting, human resources, IT, supply chain management, customer service, field service and manufacturing activities. Prior to her tenure at Galil, she served as CFO for two publicly traded companies: Urologix, Inc. and Indentix Incorporated. Lindsoe holds a Bachelor of Accounting degree from the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

“We are delighted that Elissa is joining our management team. She is a seasoned financial executive who is extremely well qualified to take on this role,” continued Demorest. “Considering our ambitious growth goals over the next several years, her strong skillset and fresh perspective will be valuable assets to MOCON. We are confident that her experience, expertise and drive will be instrumental in the future of our company.”

Said Lindsoe, “It is an honor to be appointed to this position; and I thank Bob and the Board for the vote of confidence. I am thrilled to join a company with a proven track record of top- and bottom-line expansion, exciting end-market opportunities and ambitious growth goals.”
