 WORCESTER, Mass., Aug.17 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambridge Biotech Corporation (NASDAQ:CBCX) today announced that James C. Bass will join the company as vice president and chief financial officer, effective Sept. 1, 1993.
 Bass replaces Peter P. Hartman, senior vice president and chief financial officer, who, for health reasons, will have to limit the time he can devote to the business.
 Most recently, Bass was a senior financial executive at Wang Laboratories, responsible for financial and controllership activities for subsidiary operations in thirteen countries in the Asia/Pacific and Latin American areas. He played a key role in the financial restructuring at Wang.
 Prior to joining Wang, Bass was with Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, where he held financial operating positions leading to general management. He began his career at Haskins and Sells, and is a C.P.A.

Leonard, president and chief executive officer of Cambridge Biotech, commented: "The addition of this senior financial executive demonstrates our commitment to continue to move forward vigorously as a major player in international healthcare. Jim Bass brings impressive financial credentials and specific experience in the healthcare industry in the U.S. and abroad. His experience will be invaluable as we continue to generate short and long term capital, implement innovative strategies, and improve Cambridge Biotech's worldwide market share. Peter Hartman, during his tenure with the company as CFO, made a significant contribution. We will miss him as a friend and colleague and wish him well."
