High Throughput Genomics Opens Wisconsin Sales Office

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – High Throughput Genomics has opened a commercial sales office in Madison, Wis., the company told GenomeWeb Daily News today.
 
CEO Tim Johnson said that the company in the last week began operating a small, three-person office in Madison that is being run by the company’s VP of commercial operations, Jonathan Sheridan.
 
The move will have no effect on the company’s staff in its Tucson, Ariz., headquarters, which Johnson said is in the process of expanding by between four and eight R&D and administrative personnel.
 
Johnson said the move “made sense” in part because of Wisconsin’s equidistance between the nation’s coasts and would give the company access to customers all across the US.
