Northumberland-based pharmaceutical contract manufacturer SCM Pharma has strengthened its commercial management team after the appointment of an experienced new director.
Simon Bellamy joins the award-winning sterile manufacturing specialist as Business Development Director and will be primarily responsible for bringing in new clinical trials business as well as looking for small commercial opportunities for the company’s new £6m facility in Newburn. The latest addition to the fast growing company’s 110-strong team, he brings 30 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry with his most recent business development roles at Catalent Pharma Solutions and Piramal Healthcare.
Having graduated with a First Class honours degree in Chemistry from Sheffield University, Simon is the latest high-profile director to join the manufacturer. He said: “The sterile market is one of the highest growth area in pharmaceutical outsourcing at the moment so offers incredible opportunity for growth for SCM Pharma, which was a major factor in joining this exciting business Having worked for the big contract manufacturers, it is exciting to be working within a more specialised company at a relatively early stage of its growth. SCM Pharma has an incredible culture, which is markedly different from others within this market. I am very much looking forward to the challenge of growing the business and learning more about the products we can offer, most of which have a direct impact on patients in critical care areas such as oncology,” added Simon.
