LONDON and SALT LAKE CITY 28 May 2024  Renalytix plc (NASDAQ: RNLX) (LSE: RENX) announces that O. James Sterling will step down from his role as Chief Financial Officer of the Company as of 24 May 2024 and will remain at the Company until 10 June 2024. The Board has appointed Joel R. Jung as Interim Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately while a handover period takes place.


Previously, Mr. Jung served as Chief Financial Officer at Minerva Surgical, Inc. from July 2020 to February 2024. Mr. Jung served as a financial consultant to several life sciences companies from October 2018 to July 2020. From October 2018 to June 2019, Mr. Jung held various positions at uBiome, Inc., including as Chief Financial Officer from March 2019 to June 2019.

James McCullough, Chief Executive Officer of Renalytix, commented: “We are pleased with the breadth of cost reductions we have been able to achieve in this fiscal year, as we continue our work to align the business for commercial adoption with the inclusion of KidneyIntelX in clinical guidelines.  We are fortunate to have crossed all the key milestones necessary to become a standard of care in chronic disease – FDA approval, broad reimbursement, outcomes data and clinical guidelines. We are incredibly grateful to O. James Sterling for his contribution to Renalytix since inception, but we now move into a new phase for the business. Whilst we remain focused on optimizing shareholder value, we are now well-positioned to become a sales and marketing play in a large and open market space.”
