We are proud to announce the appointment of Jeff Stone as our new US General Manager. Stone brings over a decade of extensive experience in various leadership positions across research and development, manufacturing and logistics within the pharmaceutical sector. With a passion for building teams and creating scalable processes, Stone has a track record of leadership success emphasizing collaboration and efficiency.
Stone began his pharmaceutical career in 2011 working with a leading CDMO, where he gained a diverse range of experience in logistics and clinical trial management across various clinical indications. He went on to work in the specialty logistics market, where he played a pivotal role in building a global Project Management Organization and infrastructure to support critical cell and gene therapies. This included the creation of a state-of-the-art control center in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park in which logistics operators monitored the shipments of starting material, viral vectors and modified therapies. Through this, Stone gained invaluable experience into the need of cell and gene therapy clients.
Stone then went on to spend several years in the private equity market running project management, data and supply chain teams responsible for the collection of research samples geared toward the advancement of biomarker discovery, assay development and clinical diagnostics.
Jeff officially joined Biocair on January 2, 2024, and is currently dedicating his initial days to understanding the organization, our people, processes and goals to execute the company’s strategic roadmap for 2024. As the new US General Manager, he will oversee all aspects of operations and commercial sales in the respective region. He aims to drive efficiency, effect positive change and enhance the overall client experience.
Of his new role, Jeff says:
I love the challenge working in supply chain brings. It is never easy and there is always an obstacle but finding the right balance of process and people and seeing a group come together to overcome those obstacles, often in the form of delivering a lifesaving medication, vital treatments or precious research samples, is incredibly exciting. I’m looking forward to working with the team at Biocair to continue to offer the best service for our customers.
