Summit Technology has terminated the employment of chief executive and chairman David Muller. A spokeswoman told Clinica the reasons were related to his performance. Mr Muller founded the excimer laser company in 1985 but saw its share price drop from more than $38 last December to $5.25 at the close on September 10th. Summit's board has appointed an executive committee chaired by Verne Sharma who will also serve as interim CEO.
