I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to guide the company’s maturation within the global biopharmaceutical industry.”
He continued, “I am grateful to the leadership Jason Valentine has provided in elevating Agilex to become the company it is today. It was under his watch that Agilex has achieved exponential growth, especially with the recent opening of Australia’s largest toxicology facility in Brisbane and Australia’s first satellite bioanalytical lab in a Phase 1 clinical research unit where customers can get time-sensitive preparation techniques like PBMC isolation within minutes of sample collection. I look forward to building Agilex’s future together alongside an outstanding executive team.”
