"Helen's demonstrated leadership of Onyx's oncology products will build on Halozyme's trajectory of value creation, pivoting from partnered to proprietary products," said Kenneth J. Kelley, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Halozyme. "She brings over 20 years of successful brand development and launch expertise garnered from key roles at other companies, including Amgen and Bristol Myers Squibb."

Prior to Onyx, Dr. Torley spent 14 years in management positions at Amgen, first in the Nephrology Business Unit, later in the Bone Health Business Unit. She held various senior positions at Bristol Myers Squibb, including Regional Vice President of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Sales, and Head of Cardiovascular Global Marketing. She began her industry career at Sandoz/Novartis, where she ultimately served as Vice President of Medical Affairs, overseeing clinical studies across all therapeutic areas, including oncology.

In reflecting on his 15 years at Halozyme, Dr. Frost said, "I am very proud of the multiple scientific, development, and regulatory milestones the team has achieved to date. I look forward to supporting Halozyme's next chapter of transformative healthcare in my capacity of leading the Scientific Advisory Board." 

"It is truly an honor to be joining Halozyme," said Dr. Torley. "I am excited by the unique portfolio of proprietary products in clinical testing for the treatment of cancer, diabetes and cellulite, and by the multiple royalty-based partnerships that clearly point to a talented team with a proven track record."

RJ Kirk, Halozyme's largest shareholder and member of the Board of Directors commented, "Halozyme has successfully transitioned over the last several years from being science-driven to become commercially-oriented. This is a very fortunate position to be in for any company. I laud the efforts by Greg in leading the Company to its present position with multiple product approvals under its belt. Halozyme's advanced, proprietary products are game-changing for the Company, and we must be prepared to maximize the realization of its commercial opportunities. Helen is an ideal choice to lead the company at this important moment in its trajectory."
