As CEO of Dako, he implemented a strategic repositioning of the company as a supplier of cancer diagnostics, which resulted in its acquisition by Agilent Technologies for $2.2 billion. As president of life sciences at Perkin Elmer, he was instrumental in building the company's diagnostics business with a niche focus on diagnostic systems for neonatal and prenatal screening.
