WASHINGTON — Melissa Murer Corrigan, executive director and CEO of the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board, is leaving the organization in late November, PTCB's board of governors announced Thursday.
Associate executive director William Schimmel will serve as interim executive director, PTCB said, adding that it will initiate a search for a new leader. Murer Corrigan is leaving PTCB to serve as ACT's workforce development division as VP development. ACT is an independent nonprofit organization that provides a broad array of assessment, research, information and program management solutions in the areas of education and workforce development, according to ACT's website.
The PTCB was formed in 1994 under Murer Corrigan's leadership and has certified more than 400,000 pharmacy technicians nationwide.
"On behalf of the PTCB board of governors, I congratulate Melissa on her new position," PTCB board of governors chairman Thomas Menighan said. "As the organization transitions, we remain confident in the high stakes and high volume PTCB Certification Program and its role to support pharmacists in advancing patient safety."
