Biomax has opened an office in New Glarus, Wisconsin and named Jonathan M. Sheridan as new CEO to head up Biomax Informatics, Inc. with responsibility for the Biomax business in the Americas and Japan. Biomax also has offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The move comes as the company has received an increasing number of requests from US-based companies for its BioXM™ knowledge management solution. Biomax CEO, Dr. Klaus Heumann said, "There has been such a strong demand for the BioXM platform in the US that we have accelerated our plans for overseas expansion."
He highlighted Sheridan's expertise in sales and business development in the biotechnology industry and the commercialization of life science products. "Jonathan's experience gives him the necessary know-how to give our clients and partners on the ground support and help them achieve operational excellence in fast-paced fields like systems medicine and synthetic biology."
Jonathan Sheridan said, "Decision makers within organizations are desperate to make sense of the data deluge that is occurring today. The BioXM platform provides true Knowledge Management capabilities that have been lacking within the market. Its history and reputation are second-to-none within the computational biology ecosystem and I am proud to be a member of such a prestigious team."
