Prior to Jubilant, he was the General Manger of Sterile Operations US for Hikma Pharmaceuticals where he was responsible for both internal and external manufacturing of Hikma’s finished products. He led the US Injectable team in the development and commercialization of over twenty products which greatly contributed to positioning Hikma US as a top tier generics organization. Mr. Valenzuela holds a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering Technology from Texas State University in San Marcos.

Drew Bradley brings over twenty-one years of life science sales experience to Tergus, where he will develop and lead a high-performing business development team for the company.

“Drew’s leadership is highly recognized,” said Dr. Nalamothu. “We will benefit from his CDMO sales experience supporting long-term strategic initiatives to help ensure our future growth.”

Before joining Tergus, Mr. Bradley was instrumental in growing Patheon/Thermo Fisher Scientific’s contract manufacturing services as the Director of Global Business Development Softgels and OTC for the previous three years. Before that, he was a Business Development Executive at Patheon where he built relationships and drove growth for strategic key accounts across both drug product development and commercial manufacturing, which included both Rx sterile and oral solid dose products. Prior to Patheon, he focused on business development services at Wuxi Apptec for the biologics contract testing and manufacturing capabilities where he significantly contributed to expanding their overall services. Sales doubled under his leadership. Mr. Bradley received his Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.
