NanoString Technologies Appoints James A. Johnson as Chief Financial Officer: Industry veteran brings more than 20 years of life sciences financial expertise

Seattle, WA | Posted on October 3rd, 2012

"We are very pleased to welcome Jim to the NanoString team at this critical time of expansion into the diagnostics market," said Brad Gray, President and CEO at NanoString. "Jim's expertise will be invaluable to us as we advance on our strategy to expand our portfolio of solutions for the life science research community and bring novel cancer diagnostics to market. Wayne Burns has played a critical role in building NanoString's business to date, and we're pleased we will continue to have his contributions in a new role going forward."

Mr. Johnson joins NanoString from Relypsa, a privately-held clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, where he was CFO. Previously, he spent nearly ten years with ZymoGenetics where he was most recently Executive Vice President, CFO, Treasurer and Secretary. Previously, Mr. Johnson spent seven years as CFO at Targeted Genetics. He also served as Vice President of Finance at Immunex Corporation, where he was responsible for the financial operations of the company as it advanced from development stage to full commercial operations. Mr. Johnson received his B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Washington.

"This is a very exciting time to be joining NanoString as the company builds on the momentum of its EU regulatory clearance for the PAM50 breast cancer test with the CE Mark, and the addition of new capabilities such as single cell analysis for the nCounter platform," said Mr. Johnson. "I look forward to working closely with Brad, Wayne and the entire NanoString team to further bolster the company's financial position and leverage it in accelerating our commercial growth."
