Francois Fournier has left Fort Worth-based Galderma Laboratories LP, where he has been president since 2009.
Galderma officials issued a statement today saying Fournier decided to leave his position as president.

“I am proud to have completed the successful launch of Mirvaso, a game-changer in the treatment of patients suffering from rosacea,” Fournier said in a a statement. “However, after an amazing 13 years with Galderma, I have decided it is time to pursue other professional opportunities and move on to the next phase of my career. This is not a decision that I have taken lightly and with the launch of Mirvaso and many interesting and exciting products to come, I am as confident as ever in the future of Galderma.”
