San Francisco tycoon on board
US life sciences veteran joins Arrayjet
Dr Joe Keegan has more than 30 years of experience in life science businesses and serves on a number of other boards.
As chief executive at ForteBio he raised $25 million, established product development and sales strategies that resulted in an annual revenue growth of 45%, and exited the company through its sale to Pall Corporation.
During his nine-year tenure at Molecular Devices Corporation he grew the company’s revenues from $30m to $200m through internal growth and acquisitions.
Dr Iain McWilliam, CEO of Arrayjet, said: “For us to attract one of the most powerful names in the life sciences industry as a non-executive director speaks volumes for our international reach and development.
“Joe Keegan has demonstrated success after success in a long and remarkable career and will be an indispensable guide to the Arrayjet team as we move forward.
“He brings tremendous depth of experience and knowledge about building successful life science technology companies. We are privileged to have Joe Keegan join us and I know his involvement will be transformative for our business at home and overseas.”
Dr Keegan said: “I look forward to working with Iain McWilliam and the Arrayjet team on developing strategies that leverage their high throughput bio-printing technologies to accelerate growth. Moreover, contributing to make the best decisions regarding new product development and commercial execution will be top priorities.”
