Mr. Cavanagh will assume leadership for Cambrex's innovator pharmaceutical contract manufacturing operations, including the related sales, marketing and R&D teams, Cambrex's biocatalysis business and the integration of Cambrex Zenara.  He will directly oversee the Company's new product development programs and partner with our generics leadership team to help grow our generic API business.  Mr. Cavanagh will also play an integral role in strategic planning and M&A activities.
