Former state senator to leave life-sciences group just a year after he became its CEO

MassBio announced today that Joe Boncore of Winthrop is stepping down as president, a year after he took the job after stepping down as state senator for the 1st Suffolk and Middlesex district, now represented by Lydia Edwards. He is setting up a consulting practice - and one of his first clients will be MassBio, which he will advise on "state and federal issues."

2 people inside claim he was fired, while the Group's official claim is that he resigned.

Boncore is quoted as saying his experience with his own infant being hospitalized gave him a unique perspective in leading MassBio.

Unless there was a specific incident, my inclination is to side with Boncore as he's never come across as a greedy or ladder climbing type and seemed genuinely excited last year.

It's a bit early for the tin foil (and this is pure speculation) but my gut says MassBio is either up to some shenanigans and/or expenditures for their conventions and junkets and lavish parties was too much for Boncore to take.

I could be completely wrong, and CEO or not, I'll usually side with a parent who has experience with a sick child over an amorphous group of local pharma bosses who like to party.

Business as usual.

Seems now it's private companies paying the Hacks.
The private companies probably get more value out of them than the MBTA could.
