Gregory Schiffman has joined the board of directors of Entelos, the company said last week. Schiffman has served as chief financial officer at Dendreon since December when he stepped down as CFO of Affymetrix. He also was vice president and controller for Applied Biosystems and a manager at Hewlett Packard and at IBM.
Tecan last week said it will nominate Heinrich Fisher to its board of directors at a shareholders meeting on April 17.
Fisher will step down from his position as CEO of Saurer in April, and Tecan said he has made known his willingness to be nominated for the board.
BioMicro Systems this week appointed Rob Parry as vice president of manufacturing. Parry will be responsible for expanding the company’s manufacturing operations to meet demand for the Salt Lake City firm’s MAUI Hybridization System product line.
Parry most recently held a top-level manufacturing position at Nanosys. He has also held similar positions at Fluidigm and Agilent Technologies.
