Talaris to leverage Lee's venture capital expertise with more than 55 portfolio therapeutics, medical device and healthcare services companies.

Hopkinton, MA (PRWEB) March 8, 2010 -- Talaris Advisors, LLC, today announced the appointment of Derek H. Lee to the role of Chief Financial and Corporate Development Officer. Mr. Lee comes to Talaris from SV Life Sciences (SVLS), a leading healthcare venture capital firm with capital commitments of approximately $1.5 billion. He was responsible for directing strategic financial and investment planning that incorporated market considerations into the operational performance and financing requirements of more than 55 portfolio therapeutics, medical device and healthcare services companies.

"We are entering a new phase of biotech and pharma investment today where success will be determined by a company's ability to make smart analytical decisions about its drug development candidates and terminate programs early and quickly when they miss key competitive and capital indicators,” commented Mark J. Pykett, Chief Executive Officer. “In this regard, Derek brings a strong investor perspective to our operations. His experience in aligning development with exit strategies and realizing optimal exits are a key component of Talaris’ value proposition. As our Chief Financial and Corporate Development Officer, Derek's ability to conduct quantitative and qualitative analyses, identify key risks and opportunities in complex financial and valuation models, and facilitate negotiations will give us the corporate vantage point our valued clients and investors need.”

Derek brings a decade's worth of expertise in ensuring some of the best management teams in the industry achieved their investment objectives. His background includes a range of experiences, from private and public financing strategies, to M&A transactions, partnerships and deal structuring. Lee has prior experience working with the Global Healthcare Group at UBS Warburg and with the Healthcare Investment Banking Group at Salomon Smith Barney. He received his BS Finance from Bentley College.
