Buxton’s decade-long tenure at Orthofix is slated to end May 14, the company said. Orthofix is conducting a search for a permanent finance chief and "intends that Mr. Ziegler will serve as the Company’s principal financial and accounting officer until such search is completed," according to a regulatory filing.
