Euretos, the leader in the area of in silico discovery and validation of targets and biomarkers, announces the addition of Leland Johnson to the sales team. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Mr. Johnson will represent Euretos for the East Coast of the United States and the Eastern Provinces of Canada.
Mr. Johnson brings knowledge and experience in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry through his years as a chemist and later as an entrepreneur in the biotechnology services industry. Prior to Euretos, Leland worked with WuXi AppTec in the area of Lab Testing Services, and before WuXi, he had his own consulting company, Conditas Biotechnology Group.
“Leland is joining Euretos at an important time in the company’s development”, says Arie Baak, Co-founder of Euretos. “We have seen significant growth of the business over the past few years and are looking to build on this success, especially by increasing our focus in the world’s most important biotech and pharma cluster. We are very happy that Leland has joined us to help achieve this ambition.”
