BOULDER -- SomaLogic announced it has appointed Anne Margulies, Harvard University VP and CIO, Franck J. Moison, former vice chair of Colgate-Palmolive, and private investor Richard “Rick” Post to its board of directors.
All three bring distinctive strengths and skills to the SomaLogic board that the company needs as it moves its proprietary protein measurement technology beyond research and pharmaceutical applications into broad clinical and direct-to-consumer use.
“All of us at SomaLogic are indebted to our current board members for their unwavering support and advice,” said Larry Gold, SomaLogic chair and founder.
“Adding these three wonderful, smart people to the solid foundation of our current board, along with our new CEO Roy Smythe and our talented employees, sets SomaLogic firmly on the right path for many successful years to come.”
“The current directors have been crucial to SomaLogic’s success to date,” said Smythe. “They have also made it possible for us to attract people like Anne, Franck and Rick to join them to give us the additional expertise and experience we need to successfully bring an entirely new class of digital precision health products to market.”
“SomaLogic has both a uniquely compelling story and the real potential to fundamentally transform the practice and business of healthcare,” said new board member Moison. “I and my board colleagues look forward to helping them write the next chapter of realizing that potential.”
