Nobel Biocare CEO Replaced

Nobel Biocare`s CEO Heliane Canepa has been replaced. Domenico Scala has been named its new chief executive, replacing Heliane Canepa, as of Sept 1, 2007. Nobel Biocare Chairman, Rolf Soiron, explained the decision to replace Canepa by saying: `An international company of this size should not be so greatly identified with a single person as has been the case at Nobel Biocare`. Swiss Sunday paper, SonntagsZeitung, reported Heliane Canepa has come under fire over allegations that the Swedish-Swiss dental implant maker has issued misleading statements regarding the safety of its NobelDirect and NobelPerfect implants.
Canepa said once she leaves the company, she will pursue undertakings of her own.
