Important changes in Bachem Executive Management to strengthen North American business
Bubendorf, Switzerland: – Leading peptides and oligonucleotides producer Bachem AG has announced changes to its corporate executive committee (CEC) designed to boost its visibility and presence in North America.
In an ad hoc announcement to the Swiss stock exchange (SIX) Bachem welcomed two new CEC appointments, of Dr. Torsten Wöhr as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) replacing Dr. Anne-Kathrin Stoller, who will take the new role as Chief Operating Officer Bachem Americas, reporting directly to the CEO, Thomas Meier.
Expanded NA responsibilities
Dr. Stoller will receive expanded responsibilities for the Bachem organization in North America, which includes the GMP manufacturing sites in Torrance, CA and Vista, CA. With this development, Bachem aims to further strengthen its presence and visibility in the North America region.
Anne-Kathrin Stoller has been with Bachem since 2006 and has held roles of increasing responsibility at the company, including Head of Business Development & Sales for Europe and had served as CMO since January 1, 2018. She studied chemistry in Hannover (Germany) and Cambridge (UK) and holds a doctorate in bioorganic chemistry from the University of Basel (Switzerland).
Torsten Wöhr joined Bachem in 2017 as Sales Director for the generic API business and has led Bachem’s oligonucleotide program since 2019. Previously he held commercial leadership roles in various pharmaceutical manufacturing and life sciences companies in the United States and Europe. He studied biochemistry and molecular biology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich and holds a doctorate in bioorganic chemistry from the University of Lausanne/EPFL and a postgraduate degree in Industrial Engineering and Management, ETH Zurich.
Bachem CEO Thomas Meier commented: “Anne-Kathrin Stoller will bring strong customer-facing expertise to a key market in a newly elevated COO Bachem Americas role. Torsten Wöhr has been instrumental in driving Bachem’s entry into the oligonucleotides business. I am grateful that Bachem can continue to fill critical positions with internal talent who have both strong leadership track records, as well as recognized expertise in the fields of peptides and oligonucleotides. I thank both Anne-Kathrin Stoller and Torsten Wöhr for the service to date to Bachem and look forward to working closely with both in their new roles.
