Starpharma appoints further VP Business Development to meet increasing demand for its technology

Melbourne, Australia | Posted on July 12th, 2010

Malcolm is a seasoned business development professional with more than 20 years' experience with major biotechnology companies, including 13 years with CSL where he negotiated major agreements with Pfizer and Bayer, amongst many others.

There he led negotiations and due diligence for a significant number of license agreements and transactions including Hospira's recent ~A$135M deal with Chemgenex for rights to Omacetaxine, a proprietary oncology product.

Dr Jackie Fairley, Chief Executive Officer of Starpharma, welcomed Malcolm to the executive team: "We are delighted to have Malcolm join Starpharma at this exciting stage of the company's development. His contribution will further enhance our already highly successful partnering activities in drug delivery, VivaGel®, in vitro diagnostics (IVD) and agrochemicals. Malcolm's international industry networks and experience will be a great asset in securing further commercial agreements and with this additional business development resource, Starpharma will significantly boost its commercial development capabilities."
