He will be responsible for cultivating CN Bio’s commercial and scientific relationships and applications support on a global basis.

Sarah will oversee sales, product management and marketing to shape the company’s expanding technology portfolio in all application areas. Sarah has previously held senior marketing roles at leading life science companies, including SPT Labtech, most recently, and GE Healthcare.

James Craven, Chief Commercial Officer, CN Bio, commented: “As an established and trusted cell culture company, already working with over eight of the top 20 pharma companies globally, I’m enthusiastic to be part of CN Bio’s team, to build its strategic partnerships and ensure we continue to provide the best support to researchers.
