Catalent Pharma Solutions, the leading global provider of advanced delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics and consumer health products, today announced the appointment of Brian Riley as General Manager of the company’s biologics manufacturing site in Madison, WI. Dr. Michael Jenkins, who was previously General Manager at the Madison site, has been appointed to the newly created role of VP Business Development, Biologics, Asia Pacific.

Previously, he had held the position of Director of Quality Operations at BioMerieux and had worked in Quality and Operational roles at both Biogen Idec and Amgen. He holds a B.S. from North Carolina State University and an MBA from Campbell University in North Carolina.

In his new role, Dr. Jenkins will work with Andrew Sandford to drive the Advanced Delivery Technologies, Biologics business growth. Dr. Jenkins will focus in the important emerging markets whilst Mr Sandford, who joined Catalent earlier in the year as VP Business Development, Biologics will focus on the North American and European regions.

Dr. Jenkins joined Catalent Pharma Solutions more than eleven years ago and held senior positions in Commercial Operations and Business Development before becoming General Manager of Catalent's Middleton, WI facility and latterly the new facility in Madison. He was awarded a Ph.D. by the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona, with a minor in Biochemistry, and holds a B.S. in Microbiology from the University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana.

“We would like to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Jenkins who played a key part in the success of our state-of-the-art Madison biologics facility and wish him the best in his new role, which is part of our strategic business development plans in the Asia-Pacific market” commented Catalent’s Barry Littlejohns, President, Advanced Delivery Technologies. “We also welcome Mr. Riley, who joins the company with a great deal of manufacturing management experience and will further grow the biologics business out of Madison as we embark on the next exciting stage of our company’s development.”

Developed in response to customer demand, Catalent’s Madison biomanufacturing facility, constructed through an investment of approximately $20m and completed in June 2013, quadrupled the company’s biologics manufacturing capacity.
