Longtime Boston Scientific Corp. (NYSE:BSX) public relations chief Paul Donovan has left the Natick, Mass.-based medical device giant for a similar role at Fidelity Investments.
Boston Scientific’s new director of communications, Eric Kopp, had no comment on the departure of the man he replaced other than to confirm that Donovan had left the company.
Kopp, who joined Boston Scientific in December 2010, took the reins as the top voice at BSX today, when his name replaced Donovan’s on the company’s website. Donovan was still listed as the chief spokesman for the company as recently as Tuesday’s earnings release; calls to his office earlier today were answered by an assistant who stated that Donovan was still on the job.
Besides his duties as spokesman, Donovan also served as president of the Boston Scientific Foundation for several years.
He joined the company in 2000 from Georgetown University Medical Center, where he was director of external affairs. His resumé also includes stints as chief of staff at the U.S. Dept. of Commerce and press secretary for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.).
