Hologic hands corner office to former Stryker chief, takes on 2 Icahn board members

Massachusetts medtech maker Hologic (NSDQ:HOLX) did some top-line rearranging, naming Steven MacMillan its new CEO and adding 2 members to its board of directors to appease an activist investor.

New CEO MacMillan has spent some 24 years in the medtech space, perhaps most notably as president & CEO for Stryker (NYSE:SYK). MacMillan resigned from Stryker's top spot in February 2012 amid a flurry of rumors and speculation about his personal life.
