Richard Busby Joins OncoBay leading Business Development
TAMPA, Fla. (July 07, 2020) — OncoBay Clinical, Inc., a full-service boutique contract research organization (CRO) specializing in immuno-oncology/cell therapy, is pleased to announce the expansion of their leadership team. OncoBay welcomes Richard Busby as Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
“It’s exciting to join a team of clinical research professionals with such a great track record of success in the Oncology space with the support of the scientific leadership of Moffitt Cancer Center,” said Busby.
Busby brings over 25 years of experience in clinical research from both a clinical operations and business development background. He has a proven track record of success in companies such as PPD and Pharmalink FHI, which later became Novella Clinical. Busby began his career as a clinical research associate and project manager for a variety of phase I to IV clinical trials. He joined Novella Clinical in 2006, leading the functional outsourcing team before moving to a focus on oncology programs, supporting Novella’s Biotech and Pharma sponsors.
As a business development professional, Busby draws from his operational foundation, bringing practical experience and perspective to discussions with prospective clients. He has worked to assemble and offer a variety of creative models to meet his client’s needs – from functional service models to customized preferred providers of targeted services to full turn-key CRO solutions. Busby has experience in forging strategic relationships with emerging biotech customers, as well as assembling and serving on governance committees focused on key customer metrics and delivery of customized, proactive development solutions.
“The more time we spend upfront truly learning about a prospective sponsor’s clinical programs, understanding their operational challenges and learning their overall clinical and commercial goals, the better performance we can provide from day one. Given Richard’s strong background in both operations and business development, I have no doubt that he will lay the foundation in our client relationships to accomplish this.” said Krystyna Kowalczyk, president and CEO of OncoBay Clinical.
