Emerson Resources, Inc. has formed a strategic partnership with Bio Research, a CRO specializing in agrichemical and related industries, to extend its business development capabilities. Robert Westbrook, chief executive officer of Bio Research, will spearhead Emerson's business development and sales efforts in an effort to establish a greater footprint in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors.
Currently, Emerson serves global organizations including branded, generic and OTC pharmaceutical companies, virtual and emerging pharmaceutical research organizations, raw material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and intellectual property attorneys.
"Our partnership with Bio Research will strengthen our position as the leader in value-added service, ingredients and expertise," said Adolfo Gomez, president of Emerson Resources. "Robert brings a strong combination of business development skills and diverse industry insight to Emerson and I am confident that he and his team will vastly expand our industry presence — particularly on the West Coast, an area that is ripe with opportunity."
Bio Research, based in Fresno, CA, and its subsidiary, Bio Research Services, represents select products and services related to clinical diagnostics, drug discovery, drug development, and agrichemicals.
As Emerson Resources' new business development executive, Mr. Westbrook will focus on creating new sales channels and building client and industry relationships in support of the Emerson's strategic growth objectives.
