Mr. Benet has over twenty-five years of experience in marketing and sales in the in vitro diagnostics and consumer goods industries.  Prior to joining IL, he held marketing and sales positions of increasing responsibility for Centocor Diagnostics, Ortho Diagnostic Systems and Ciba-Geigy (now Novartis).  Mr. Benet holds a law degree from the University of Barcelona and an MBA from IESE, University of Navarra, both in Spain.
