Sunderland-based chemistry expert Onyx Scientific has strengthened its US presence with the appointment of a Chicago-based business development director. Dan Brisard will oversee the contract manufacturing organisation’s business development activities across the eastern half of the US.
An experienced commercial executive, Dan has worked across the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector for around fifteen years. A graduate in Chemistry from the University of Illinois and in Analytical Chemistry from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Dan also brings technical knowhow to his new role that will assist the company’s US-based pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients.
Denise Bowser, commercial director at Onyx Scientific, said: “Having Dan on board is a massive boost to the company as he brings exceptional commercial experience gained in the industry along with a strong chemistry background.
“At the request of our customers, we have really looked to expand our offering over the last year to minimise the need for clients to use several suppliers on the same project. Dan will play a key role in communicating the breadth of our services in addition to our track record and achievements to the US market,” added Denise.
Dan Brisard said, “I have been really impressed with Onyx Scientific over the last few years and was attracted by the company’s strong reputation in the contract chemistry and manufacturing sector.”
