NEW YORK, Sept. 26 – Functional genomics company BioSource International said Wednesday it had appointed Leonard Hendrickson president and CEO.
Until now, Hendrickson has been serving as the president and director of Isotope Products Laboratories. He has also been a director of BioSource of Camarillo, Calif., since 1993.
Hendrickson will replace James Chamberlain, the company’s founder and former president and CEO, who returned from retirement in May to serve as interim CEO.
Hendrickson said his first task would be to jumpstart sales for the company.
"My first job will be to strategically position the company for accelerated top-line growth,” Hendrickson said in a statement.
BioSource develops reagent systems for genomics and proteomics that are designed to facilitate the discovery of new treatments.
Hendrickson will assume the duties of CEO on October 15.
