BioPorto A/S appoints new Chief Executive Officer and announces changes to the Board of Directors
BioPorto A/S (“BioPorto”) has announced the appointment of Anthony Pare as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Anthony (Tony) Pare, a US citizen, will join BioPorto directly from T2 Biosystems, a US Nasdaq-listed in vitro diagnostics company, where he served as the Chief Commercial Officer and presided over several successful product launches. He will start in BioPorto by mid-November 2021.
Prior to T2 Biosystems, Anthony Pare served as Chief Commercial Officer at Hemanext (US), and in various commercial and business development leadership roles at Haemonetics (US), which specialized in blood processing and diagnostic technologies. He holds a Master’s degree in Engineering Administration from George Washington University (US).
“I am extremely pleased with the appointment of Tony as BioPorto’s new CEO. For 24 years, he has been leading product development, commercialization, marketing and operations improvements in leading medtech and diagnostic companies. During this time, he has delivered impressive results, driving business value, increasing product presence and growing sales, both in the US and globally. His is a very strong match with BioPorto’s commercialization plan for The NGAL Test™ and gRAD platform-based products,” said Christopher Lindop, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors at BioPorto.
“I am very excited to take on the role of CEO of BioPorto from Peter Mørch Eriksen. BioPorto’s superior technologies have tremendous potential to fundamentally improve diagnosis and prognosis to benefit patients, physicians and healthcare systems. I look forward to leading BioPorto as our US and Denmark-based team works to realize the full value of the company’s pipeline,” Anthony Pare said.
