Allergan Swaps CFO

Irvine-based Allergan said this morning that it has swapped its CFO, naming Jim Hindman as its new Executive Vice President, Finance and Business Development and Chief Financial Officer. Hindman replaces Jeff Edwards, who Allergan said has stepped down due to family commitments. Edwards will remain with Allergan to help transition the role. Edwards had been at Allergan for 21 years, with the last nine years as CFO. Hindman also is a longtime Allergan vet, having been at the company since 1984. He has been Senior Vice President, Treasury, Risk and Investor Relations since 2002.
