Call him the Stephen Covey of genomics. Walter Simson, recently appointed CEO of Infigen in DeForest, Wis., has some ideas that he hopes will please his new colleagues.
Simson, 45, began his career in investment banking. “That would probably have been the sum total of my experience,” he says, but he wound up helping his father and got a taste of small business that he relished. He later joined Research Biochemicals (now Sigma-RBI).
