Sartorius has announced the appointment of Gerry MacKay as executive vice-president of marketing, sales and services for its laboratory products and services (LPS) division.
Mr McKay will join the company's executive committee and is an experienced biopharmaceutical manager, joining the firm in 2015 following the acquisition of contract testing services company BioOutsource, where he had served as chief executive.
“Sartorius has appointed Gerry MacKay as executive vice-president of marketing, sales and services for its laboratory division, succeeding Michael Melingo.“
Prior to his tenure with BioOutsource, he held senior-level positions with Entegris, Mykrolis and Millipore. His new appointment sees him assume a role previously occupied by Michael Melingo.
Joachim Kreuzburg, chief executive officer of Sartorius, said: "His considerable experience in the global biopharma market will be instrumental to strengthen the momentum on our LPS division's new strategic direction."
This comes after the company recently announced the acquisition of Essen BioScience, a leader in the field of cell-based assays and instrumentation used for drug discovery and basic research applications, from former owner SFW Capital Partners.
