New Product (Polymer/Materials Science) and Business Development Leader.
A world renowned expert in polymer synthesis and materials characterization, who uses his marketing and project management skills to identify and develop new materials to meet the needs of the marketplace. A leader of large, global, multidisciplinary, matrix-oriented groups in new product and new business development.
I have experience leading large research groups, with a focus on new Product Development and Business Development, to quickly develop, commercialize and monetize new technology. In collaboration with Marketing and Sales functions, I use marketing information to identify and develop new product development programs, and ensure that those projects are progressing using stage gate methodologies.
I also have experience in protecting intellectual property by developing and executing a patenting/licensing strategy.
My scientific experience includes polymer synthesis and catalysis, polymer characterization, block copolymers, organic(polymeric) light emitting diodes (OLEDs), Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP), and controlled/"living" radical polymerization.
