Abcam appoints chief financial officer

Former Affymetrix executive Gavin Wood takes up the role

Cambridge, UK-based Abcam has appointed Gavin Wood as its new chief financial officer.

Wood will succeed Jeff Illiffe from 18 July, taking on the role permanently and joining the firm's executive board from 12 September.

He joins Abcam from Affymetrix, where he held a number of senior leadership roles including finance and international controller and, most recently, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Prior to this Wood worked at the Unipart Group, a logistics and consultancy company, serving as its business unit controller and business process manager, among other roles.

Alan Hirzel, Abcam's chief executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome Gavin to Abcam as we enter another exciting phase of growth and leadership in our industry.

“Gavin is a well-regarded public company chief financial officer and brings directly relevant industry experience to Abcam.

“We were all impressed by his track record of financial control, systems implementation experience, market knowledge and transactional experience at Affymetrix.

“As we look ahead to building our business, we are confident that Gavin has the skills and leadership to strengthen our team and deliver results.

“I thank Jeff for his significant contributions to Abcam's success over nearly a decade and for his support during this transition.”
