John Crison has Joined Simulations Plus as its director of life sciences.
The company, which offers simulation and modeling software for pharmaceutical discovery and development, announced that Crison replaces Michael Bolger, who has “served the company very well” for 11 years.
However, Bolger moved 350 miles from company offices in Lancaster, which was no longer in line with company needs.
”The telecommuting arrangement worked well when the team was smaller, but with our rapidly growing team here in Lancaster, he [Michael Bolger] and I agreed that we needed an on-site director,” said CEO Walt Woltosz in a statement.
