Less than two years after initiating a comprehensive relaunch of the state’s official life sciences organization, SCBIO has expanded its Board of Directors for its 501c6 operational entity and added a second 10-member Board for its 501c3 research and educational arm for 2019. It does so having authored the state’s first-ever life sciences strategic growth plan, conducted an economic impact study validating the contributions of the $11.4 billion industry, tripled revenues and quadrupled membership all since Spring 2017.

And according to SCBIO President and CEO Sam Konduros, the best and most exciting days for the industry and organization are still ahead of it.

“In a state perhaps best known for building BMWs and Boeing Dreamliners, there is a very strong life sciences story brewing as well, creating opportunities to diversify and accelerate growth of our state’s knowledge economy,” said Konduros recently. He further cited rapid growth of such national and global brands including Nephron Pharmaceuticals, Arthrex, ZEUS, Abbott, Thorne and AVX as just a few examples of the state’s rapidly rising life sciences industry, which currently spans more than 400 companies in 44 counties and employs over 15,000 well-paid associates.

Leading the policy- and strategy-making efforts of the 501c6 entity of the non-profit organization, the Board of Directors meets regularly to receive updates on SCBIO business objectives, domestic and global initiatives, and to help hone strategies and offer insight. Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation CEO Lou Kennedy will serve as SCBIO’s 2019 Board Chair; Stephanie Yarbrough, Womble Bond Dickinson, LLP as Vice Chair; Michael Rusnak, Medical University of South Carolina Research Foundation as Treasurer; and Josh Ridley of ZEUS as Secretary.

Jeff Stover of Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, PA will serve as Legal Officer; Heather Simmons Jones of the Greenwood Partnership Alliance as Annual Conference Officer; Bryan Davis of Prisma/Greenville Health System’s Office of Innovations as Healthcare/Innovation Officer; Adam Hoots of DPR Construction as Talent/Workforce Officer; and Sam Konduros, President and CEO of SCBIO.
