ExonHit Therapeutics said last week that Matthew Pando and John Jaskowiak will join the company’s management board, and Philippe Rousseau will become president of the board until the company appoints a new CEO. Rousseau has been chief financial officer at ExonHit since 2002 and has been a member of its management board since 2004. The firm’s previous CEO and co-founder Bruno Tocque will remain with ExonHit in a consulting position.
Jaskowiak started with the company in 2006, and was recently appointed head of Molecular Diagnostics and Genomic Services. Pando came to the company in 2002, and recently was named head of its Therapeutics Unit.
Douglas Amorese has been named vice president of research and development at NuGen Technologies, the firm said this week.
Amorese was most recently director of R&D in Agilent Technologies’ genomics group. He has also held positions at Life Technologies and DuPont.
