Sharpening communications and corporate affairs
‘We are thrilled to have Adam join us as a proven leader in investor relations and corporate strategy,’ comments Peter Blume-Jensen, CEO, president and founder of Acrivon, in a statement.
‘Adam has demonstrated a keen ability to effectively communicate novel scientific concepts and narratives in a highly cogent, constructive manner… Adding Adam to the team reflects our commitment to further sharpening our communications and corporate affairs.’
In a comment to IR Magazine, Levy says: ‘As a science-driven biotech, Acrivon is advancing rapidly at the cutting edge of proteomics. The AP3 technology platform, the experienced team and a winning culture make it a very compelling opportunity for me as an IR professional.’
