His career includes a 20-year stint at German company Bayer, including spells managing its domestic and international anti-infectives, quinolone and hospital/surgical business franchises.

Mmost recently he served as president at ZymoGenetics until its acquisition by Bristol-Myers Squibb in 2010. Since then he has worked as an independent consultant in life sciences.
