Mr. Kay has 35 years of experience in the medical industry in roles which include R&D, International Marketing, Regulatory Affairs and Strategic Planning at companies such as Schering-Plough, Allergan Europe and American Home Products.

Mr. Kay is a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine (UK) and serves on the Boards of several startup healthcare companies.

There, he grew sales from $37M to $72M (including 60% growth in Asia) and turned the company from negative profitability to 15% EBITDA over three years. Like Mr. Kay, he has a distinguished history of successful international experience, having worked in multiple European and Asian locations. Mr. Robinson has extensive experience in managing business strategies for the chemical and material science industries, and has a proven record of leading M&A activities, including several deals for Rohm and Haas which resulted in a $2 billion electronic materials platform. Mr. Robinson received his Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Leeds in the UK.

Mr. Kay and Mr. Robinson will join the Board consisting of Michael C. Ferrara, Leo Pierre Roy, Eric G. Walters and Chairman George Uveges.
