As expected, Cetus Corp. said Thursday that it has named President Robert A. Fildes to the additional position of chief executive. Ronald E. Cape, Cetus co-founder and chairman, also had been chief executive. Cape will remain as chairman. Fildes, 47, joined Cetus in December, 1982, as president and chief operating officer. As Cape became increasingly active in industry organizations and issues, Fildes has assumed more and more of the day-to-day responsibilities for the No. 2 biotechnology firm.
