Gonzalez, 58, is the latest in a long line of executives who have been ensnared in controversies over inaccurate resumes. But while such disclosures have hastened the exit of some, including Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson in May, analysts say Gonzalez's successes over a long career at Abbott should spare him. They're making it sound like an administrative error by someone else, not him," said Jeff Jonas, a portfolio manager for Gabelli Health and Wellness Trust Mutual Funds, which holds Abbott shares. Gonzalez was chosen to head the company's new pharmaceutical spinoff AbbVie as of Jan. On Thursday, the company said he did not complete his college education or receive a masters' degree, as listed on his official biography in Abbott's regulatory filings for several years. Abbott said the falsely reported degrees were due to "an administrative error," and did not give further details on how it escaped notice by Gonzalez, other executives or company auditors.
