Catalent announces organizational restructuring2 May 2018
Restructuring to support customer demand for fast, integrated biologics development.
Catalent Pharma Solutions has announced key organizational changes within its biologics business to further align its organization with customer demand for integrated and comprehensive, end-to-end biologics solutions. Further underlining Catalent’s commitment to continued growth and investment in biologics, the reorganization follows its 2017 acquisition of Cook Pharmica, and with it the addition of its award-winning 875,000-sq ft facility in Bloomington, Indiana to provide comprehensive biologics development, analytical services, and drug substance and drug product manufacturing.
Tedd Green, former President of Cook Pharmica, becomes Senior Vice President of Catalent Biologics, and will have responsibility for the entire biologics business. He will continue to report to Barry Littlejohns, President, Catalent Biologics and Specialty Drug Delivery, and will also act as a member of Catalent’s Executive Leadership Team. Mr Green will be based at the Bloomington facility.
Mike Riley becomes Vice President and General Manager of Drug Substance and Bioanalytical services for Catalent Biologics. He will lead the company’s biologics manufacturing business, including its state-of-the-art mammalian cell-line engineering and biomanufacturing capabilities, and its broad bioanalytical capabilities based at several sites across Catalent’s global network.
Cory Lewis will take on the new role of Vice President and General Manager of the Catalent Biologics Drug Product business, with a focus on successfully growing the Catalent Biologics drug product offerings both in the US and in Europe.
In a further move, Ryan Hawkins has been appointed as General Manager of the Bloomington site, having been instrumental to its success through his contributions and leadership over the last 10 years.
With the $950 million acquisition of Cook Pharmica, in October 2017, Catalent further strengthened its position as a leader in integrated biologics development, clinical and commercial-scale manufacturing and finished product supply. The additions of this first-class team and unparalleled facilities have brought deep expertise in liquid and lyophilized sterile formulation and fill-finish across vials, prefilled syringes, auto-injectors, cartridges, and safety devices, and 2,500L biomanufacturing capacity to augment Catalent’s existing biologics infrastructure. With this additional capacity and expertise, Catalent can now provide a single, trusted partner to accelerate all aspects of biologic drug development.
