"There is no other leader better equipped to introduce VR Laboratories to the global marketplace than Jeff Kottkamp," says Robert Gow, chairman and founder of HerbalScience, which licensed its proprietary technology platform to VR Laboratories.

Kottkamp is an attorney and has worked with several prominent legal firms in Florida.

"VR Laboratories will bring more than 200 new jobs and an estimated $40 million annually into Lee County's economy," says Kottkamp.

Ultimately, we want to contribute to making Southwest Florida the center of the burgeoning global botanical pharmaceutical market."
