“Peter and Cliff both bring proven management expertise, outstanding business acumen and a wide-range of experience to IPS”, said Dave Goswami, PE, chief executive officer and managing director of IPS. “Peter’s knowledge of the biopharmaceutical industry and Cliff’s business acumen will be of tremendous value as we continue to develop our short- and long-term plans. Peter is an industry recognized, experienced Fortune 500 executive with extensive global experience and has a true understanding of the issues facing global biopharmaceutical manufacturing companies in the U.S. and emerging countries.
