Former DoubleTwist CEO Rob Williamson has landed a new job as president and COO of South San Francisco-based Eos Biotechnology.

Williamson was promoted from president to CEO of DoubleTwist in January 2002 in an unsuccessful bid to salvage the company, which closed it doors in March.

Eos CEO David Martin cited Wiliamson’s “business development, financial, and operating experience” as strengths that would aid the company’s efforts to move its pipeline of therapeutic antibodies toward the clinic.
