The group pointed out that Trevor Phillips is the current chairman of the Board at NEPeSMO and has extensive experience in the UK and US in corporate development, M&A and operations in the pharmaceutical and life science industries including previously held positions as executive chairman of hVIVO (2017-2020), chief operating officer for Vectura Group PLC (2011-2017) and former CEO and COO of Critical Therapeutics, Inc. (2002-2008).
Both will be appointed to the board of Tissue Regenix following the completion of the necessary regulatory due diligence in accordance with the AIM Rules, the company said, with Brian Phillips to chair the Audit Committee and Trevor Phillips to chair the Renumeration Committee.
Alongside these appointments, the group noted that, after many years of service, Alan Miller and Randeep Grewal have notified the board of their resignation as non-executive directors with immediate effect.
