CEO of BioConvergence® Receives Women Excel Bloomington Award for Outstanding Leadership and Service

Bloomington, Indiana (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce recently honored Alisa Wright, Founder and CEO of BioConvergence, a Bloomington-based contract manufacturing organization, with the Women Excel Bloomington (WEB) Award on July 9, 2013. The selection committee received a number of nominations and based final selection on “outstanding leadership and spirit in both the community and/or in their organization,” according to the Chamber’s related press release.

Wright’s industry experience began with Eli Lilly and Company, Cook Pharmaceutical Solutions, and Baxter Pharmaceutical Solutions and includes contributions to developing the first drug for pancreatic cancer, launching 50 clinical programs, and producing bio-defense vaccines and therapeutics for the U.S. government (including the first initiative following September 11, 2001), respectively.

After working for 25 years in large pharmaceutical and contract manufacturing organizations, she identified gaps in the industry and founded BioConvergence in an effort to help pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies streamline vendor management systems, mitigate risk, and move product to market, and to the patients in need... more quickly.

Throughout her career, Wright has actively participated in the community by offering her time to various lecturing and mentoring programs and serving on multiple advisory boards for surrounding academic institutions. She has also volunteered alongside organizations such as BioCrossroads and Indiana Health Industry Forum.

“Alisa’s broad expertise, acquired from a variety of diverse roles in the industry, has certainly played a significant role in her entrepreneurial achievements. But, her personal values, centered in hard work, authenticity, and the genuine desire to make the world a better place, define the patient-focused culture of BioConvergence that propels the organization’s success,” relates Lesli Stasiek, Global Manager of Business Development and Marketing.

Wright also attributes much of her success to her sources of inspiration: her parents. “My parents continue to be my mentors in life and business—balancing encouragement and correction as only those with the best intentions (and those who have a full knowledge of your strengths and weaknesses) can.”

Along with Wright, six other women were honored at the WEB Awards ceremony: Lisa Fulkerson, Vice President & CFO of Children’s Organ Transplant Association; Melanie Hart, President of TASUS Corporation; Beth Lodge-Rigal, Owner/Founder & Creative Director of Women Writing for Change Bloomington & Writing for Change; Natalia Rayzor, Employment Development Officer of IU Credit Union; Jean Willey Scallon, CEO & Managing Director of Bloomington Meadows Hospital; and Melinda Seader, Director of Marketing for World Wide Automotive.
