B&L chief for Americas resigns

Bausch & Lomb Inc. is hunting for a new president for its Americas region.
The search follows the resignation of Hakan Edstrom, who stepped down to pursue other opportunities, company officials said.
The president of the Americas region oversees the commercial aspects of Bausch & Lomb’s contact lens, lens care, cataract, refractive and pharmaceutical businesses. The region covers the United States, Canada and Latin America.
The eye-care company’s stock (NYSE: BOL) was down some 4 percent at 2 p.m., trading at $44.01.
Bausch & Lomb last week beat Street estimates by a penny for its fourth-quarter earnings.
The company reported revenues for the quarter ended Dec. 30 were $462.4 million, down 1 percent from $466.6 million a year ago.
