John McMahon, age 55, has more than 25 years of accounting experience, including over a decade in principal accounting officer roles at publicly traded companies.

Mr. McMahon was Chief Financial Officer of Anivive Lifesciences from March 2018 until July 2018 and was Chief Financial Officer at Heska Corporation from October 2015 through the end of 2017.

In the event Mr. McMahon’s employment is terminated without cause, Mr. McMahon will be entitled to six (6) months of severance pay, at his base compensation in effect at that time.
