Chemistry firm boosts us commercial team
Sunderland-based chemistry specialist Onyx Scientific has further strengthened its US team with the appointment of another business development professional.
Adam Moorhouse joins the contract research and manufacturing organisation as a Director of Business Development and will be responsible for developing new prospects for the company in Western USA. 30-year-old Adam from the North West is the latest high-profile appointment for Onyx Scientific after the company recruited Chicago-based commercial executive Dan Brisard to oversee its business development activities across the eastern half of the US in November.
With a first class degree in Chemistry from the University of Oxford and a PhD in Organic Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Nottingham, Adam brings impressive technical knowledge to his new role. Vineet Luhariwala, business unit head at Onyx Scientific, said: “Adam demonstrates a very high level of energy and enthusiasm that will no doubt make him a major asset to our business development team. His superb chemistry knowledge will equip him well to identify and pursue business opportunities with existing pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients and prospects on the West Coast.”
With MHRA and FDA facilities in the UK and India, Onyx Scientific assists companies in developing new drug products. Adam joins the company following two years working in international business development and account management for a UK-based laboratory instrument manufacturer.
He said: “Given my qualifications in chemistry and recent commercial experience, joining a well-established company like Onyx Scientific is a great opportunity. The backing and strategic alliance of a large, successful Indian company like Ipca Laboratories also proved a very attractive proposition.”
