Magellan Pharmaceutical Development Appoints VP
Pharmaceutical Development Organization Hires New Business Development Leader
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (June 5, 2002)) - Magellan Pharmaceutical Development, a full-service contract pharmaceutical development organization (PDO) formerly known as Magellan Laboratories and now owned by Cardinal Health, named Lori Feehan vice president of business development.
Feehan, who is based out of Magellan's new Somerset, N.J. facility, will lead the sales groups for Somerset, Research Triangle Park, N.C. and Albuquerque, N.M. By fully leveraging Magellan's capabilities with Cardinal Health and vice versa, Feehan will be able to identify and capture opportunities for clients requiring the full spectrum of drug development services.
During the past year, Feehan served under Cardinal Health's Pharmaceutical Technologies & Services Commercial Development (PTSC) group as vice president and project consultant. Feehan collaborated with the Pharmaceutical Technologies & Services (PTS) business units and account development team to secure formulation and development agreements.
Prior to Cardinal, Feehan was with Pfizer/Warner-Lambert as vice president and general manager of North America Schick®. She was also the vice president, global category director of Upper Respiratory brands, where she was involved in accessing Phase I/II prescription compounds for in-licensing.
"Lori's history leading large-scale sales efforts and her familiarity with Cardinal's PTSC group makes her the ideal candidate for this senior position," says Lowry Caudill, president of pharmaceutical development at Magellan. "We are confident that Lori will continue to build the company as the premiere provider of outsourced pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical product development."
Feehan earned her bachelor's degree in economics and American studies at Douglass College and her M.B.A. in marketing/finance at Rutgers University.
