Sesen Bio Director Jane Pritchett Henderson Transitions to CEO Advisor Role

Sesen Bio (Nasdaq: SESN), a late-stage clinical company developing targeted fusion protein therapeutics for the treatment of patients with cancer, today announced that Jane Pritchett Henderson, previously a member of Sesen Bio’s Board of Directors and the Chair of the Board’s Audit Committee, has transitioned off the Board of Directors to a CEO Advisor role, effective November 22, 2021. Ms. Henderson departed the Board in order to concentrate on other responsibilities outside of Sesen Bio, including as Chief Financial Officer of Adagio Therapeutics and as a director of two other companies.

“On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to thank Jane for her numerous contributions over her long tenure on Sesen Bio’s Board,” said Dr. Thomas Cannell, president and chief executive officer of Sesen Bio. “Jane’s extensive expertise in building and leading financial organizations and in corporate and business development has been instrumental to our growth. As we look ahead, I am grateful that she will continue to serve in an advisory role, and I am confident that Sesen Bio will continue to benefit from her invaluable advice, insights and knowledge for years to come.”

Current Director Jason Keyes has been named as Chair of the Audit Committee, and Board Chair Jay S. Duker, MD will replace Mr. Keyes as Chair of the Board’s Compensation Committee. Following Ms. Henderson’s departure, the Company’s Board is composed of six directors, all of whom are independent, other than Dr. Cannell. The Board has undergone significant refreshment over the past two years, including the addition of Peter K. Honig, MD, who has significant global regulatory experience, and Michael A.S. Jewett, MD, FRCSC, FACSH, a practicing oncologist with extensive clinical expertise. The CEO Advisor role was established in 2020, and Ms. Henderson joins Wendy L. Dixon, Ph.D., Dana Dunn, MS, Howard L. Levine, Ph.D., Daniel S. Lynch, MBA and Louise Park Stejbach in serving the Company in this capacity.

“Sesen Bio has a deep commitment to saving and improving the lives of patients with bladder cancer, and it has been a pleasure to support the company in its efforts to deliver on this critical mission,” said Ms. Henderson. “I have been honored to work alongside an esteemed Board and patient-inspired team over my tenure and to help enable the company’s evolution over the last eight years. I look forward to working with Tom and continuing to help guide the company in this new advisory capacity.”
