SALT LAKE CITY, July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MasterControl, a provider of software solutions that enable life sciences and other regulated companies to deliver life-changing products to more people sooner, today announced that Michelle Tanner will assume the role of CFO for the organization.

With more than 20 years of financial expertise and leadership, including public accounting and a CPA designation, Tanner is poised to meet challenges and capture opportunities for MasterControl.
