Clarence Verhoef has informed Varex Imaging Corporation of his intention to retire as senior vice president and chief financial officer. Verhoef, 64, will remain in his current role until a successor is named, which Varex expects will occur during fiscal year 2020. Verhoef will continue to manage the company’s finance team and public company filing requirements while the company conducts a search for his replacement and will assist with an orderly transition of his responsibilities.
“Clarence has been an integral part of our company for many years, and an inspirational leader through the spin-off from Varian Medical Systems three years ago,” said Sunny Sanyal, president and CEO of Varex. “With his help and guidance, we established a global finance team and corporate infrastructure that will lead us into the future. His in-depth knowledge of the industry and our operations have been a tremendous asset. We have been very fortunate to have Clarence on our management team.”
“I am fortunate and proud to have spent the past 14 years at a company that has the mission of helping save lives by making the invisible visible,” said Verhoef. “Overall, I have had the privilege to work for several market leading companies in the medical imaging industry over the past four decades, but I look forward to the prospects of retirement. Varex has a great culture that is committed to image quality and customer service and I am proud to be part of an energetic team that is dedicated to our leadership in x-ray imaging innovation.”
As CFO, Verhoef is responsible for all aspects of the finance, information technology, strategic sourcing and facilities functions for Varex, and he manages a team of approximately 200 employees around the globe. During his time as a senior finance leader for Varian and Varex, the imaging components business grew revenues from under $100 million to over $780 million. Under his CFO leadership, Varex completed the spin-off and set-up of 35 subsidiaries, added four acquisitions and expanded its multinational footprint as a globally local business, including its operations in China, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden.
