He brings strong relationships and deep experience at all levels of government, and will be a tremendous asset to the association and our members as we continue to advocate for policies and programs that save patients and the U.S. health system billions of dollars, promote pharmaceutical competition and expand access to more affordable generic medicines."

"I'm very excited to work on behalf of generic drug manufacturers and others who share a mission to improve the lives of patients and families across the country while simultaneously saving the U.S. healthcare system hundreds of billions of dollars per year," said Bowlin.  "As somebody with family members that cope with chronic diseases I know firsthand the value of generic drugs. This role presents a unique opportunity for me, both personally and professionally, to find innovative policy solutions that will positively impact patient health in fiscally responsible ways.  I look forward to working with the team to ensure that patients and providers have access to safe, effective and affordable generic and biosimilar medicines in an expeditious manner."
