Tom says “I am very excited to be joining the PBD Biotech team. PBD has a remarkable combination of expertise, IP and technology which can make a transformational positive impact on the huge global challenges of bovine TB and Johne’s disease. I look forward to working with Berwyn and his team to support ambitious plans for commercialisation of the technology.”
On behalf of the Company, Chief Executive Dr Berwyn Clarke commented “the acquisition of such a high calibre Chairman to our board is testament to the potential of our technology to transform the management of tuberculosis in agriculture. Tom has huge experience both in the UK and overseas markets which will be an enormous asset as we roll out our global commercialisation strategy.”
