Biomax Informatics Expands US Operations

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Biomax Informatics AG has moved the headquarters of Biomax Informatics Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary in the United States, from Cambridge, Mass. to New Glarus, Wis.

The company has also tapped Jonathan Sheridan, who is currently the vice president of corporate development for Biomax AG, to serve as CEO of its US subsidiary. In this role, he will be responsible for the company's business efforts in the Americas and Japan including hiring new personnel and pushing forward partnerships with yet-to-be-named firms, he told GWDN.

The company chose to expand its North America business because of an increasing number of requests from US-based companies for its BioXM knowledge management solution, according to Biomax AG CEO Klaus Heumann. It selected Sheridan to head this arm of the company because of his expertise in sales and business development in the biotechnology industry and the commercialization of life science products.
