Horsham, Pa. (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

DIA today announced that Barbara Lopez Kunz has been named global chief executive, leading the organization as of Sept. 1, 2013. Kunz brings exceptional worldwide leadership experience to DIA as former president of the Global Health and Life Sciences business at Battelle, an international science and technology nonprofit organization that explores emerging areas of science, develops and commercializes technology and manages laboratories.

“DIA is excited to welcome an internationally respected leader who mirrors our vision—to be the global forum fostering innovation to raise the level of health and well-being worldwide,” DIA President Minnie Baylor-Henry said. “Barbara has a remarkably successful track record of growing businesses that are based on innovation in science and technology and implementing globally effective strategies, and we are looking forward to her leadership and guidance.”

In her role with Battelle, Kunz transformed the Global Health and Life Sciences through strategic investments, alliance development and technology commercialization, increasing the number of research collaborations with industrial, government and academic sponsors. She has also held senior roles at Thermo Fisher Scientific (formerly Fisher Scientific International), Croda International (formerly Uniqema), DuPont and PPG Industries, after starting her career as a research scientist.

A leader on numerous corporate and nonprofit boards, she has presided over the board of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and is a trustee of both the Nationwide Children’s Hospital research institute and BioOhio, the statewide organization stimulating economic development in the bioscience community. Kunz is a member of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association Ohio chapter advisory board.

“I look forward to continuing to advance innovation worldwide as I lead DIA into its 50th year. The foundation is in place to use my global knowledge of patient needs and the health care community to fortify DIA’s significant role in transferring vital information across the globe,” Kunz said.
