Bailey initially joined PGDx as VP of marketing and was then promoted to chief commercial officer, leading the company’s marketing, sales, customer support, and communications arms in developing and executing global go-to-market strategies. She contributed to the achievement of CE marks for both the elio tissue complete assay and elio plasma resolve products and played a key role in establishing strategic collaborations with organizations such as the Mayo Clinic and PathGroup.
