The promotions… are intended to optimize the leadership structure of the company both to reflect our current size as a global organization with over 1600 employees across 24 sites and to position us for further growth as we move into the future. Abdul and John are proven leaders who have delivered phenomenal results for Frontage for over a decade, and they are each trusted and respected throughout the organization and pharmaceutical industry. We have been preparing them for their new responsibilities for some time and Frontage is privileged to elevate them to their new roles. In addition, with Abdul and John in their new positions, I will have a greater ability to focus on strategic and corporate development initiatives. This is an exciting time for Frontage, and I am looking forward to maintaining my close working relationship with Abdul and John as we continue to serve our stakeholders worldwide.”
