NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Tripos Discovery Informatics has tapped Jim Hopkins to be CEO of the newly private company, which was purchased last week by Vector Capital for $26.2 million.
Hopkins most recently was CEO of the software company Micrografx, now owned by Corel. He is experienced in IPOs, secondary offerings, and in strategic sales and acquisitions, the company said.
Hopkins said he is “excited to lead this organization as an independent company, refocused and poised for profitable growth.”
Tripos said it plans to focus on innovating its core technologies, specifically its SYBYL suite, which supports drug-discovery workflows.
