Hovione Appoints Terry Lambe to its Board of Directors

CORK, Ireland, September 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Hovione announced today that Terry Lambe, Ph.D., has been elected to the Board of Directors of Hovione Ltd.

Hovione acquired earlier this year an important API manufacturing site located in Cork. This is a key element of the Hovione strategy to become a leading manufacturer to the pharmaceutical industry.

"We are delighted to welcome Terry Lambe to Hovione. We want to build our Cork site into the ideal, preferred, launch facility for new product introductions. In the context of the emerging business model based on outsourcing, our Cork site provides innovator pharmaceutical companies with all the benefits of a top manufacturing facility without the costs of ownership. Terry has a good understanding of what Large Pharma requires and brings to Hovione a wealth of international experience in manufacturing activities. We also feel that to do this right it is important to have on the board of our subsidiary company in Ireland someone familiar with the local culture and with strong links into the Irish pharmachem industry," said Guy Villax, Hovione's Chief Executive. In addition Terry also becomes a member of the Hovione Manufacturing Committee that sets out the longer-term production strategy for the group.

"I am enthusiastic about joining a successful and dynamic company like Hovione and I hope to be able to make a significant contribution to its profitable growth," said Dr. Lambe.

Dr. Lambe worked at Pfizer for 30 years, during this time he held roles of increasing responsibility in manufacturing and was responsible for the construction of several API facilities in Puerto Rico, in Groton, Connecticut and later in Singapore. In 1999, Dr. Lambe assumed his role as Vice President, Global Drug Substance. In 2000, he was appointed Team Leader / Vice President, Ireland / Singapore Manufacturing Area, a position he held until 2008. In 2004, Dr. Lambe was awarded the Bio-Link USA - Ireland Life Science Award for his contribution to the Pharmaceutical Industry.
