The Chase Group was once again retained by Akcea Therapeutics to complete an extensive executive search on an accelerated timeline for a Senior Vice President, Global Medical Affairs, and the search was successfully completed in less than 60 days with the appointment of Dr. Christophe Hotermans. A seasoned medical affairs executive and industry veteran, Dr. Hotermans will lead the execution and development of worldwide medical strategies, activities, and operations as a member of the Akcea executive management team. Dr. Hotermans has 20+ years of experience, including more than 12 years in the biotechnology industry with roles in drug safety and medical affairs, both US and global.
