At Avantor, Michael has led a dramatic portfolio evolution since being named CEO, and has positioned the company as a leader in life sciences through new product innovation, organic growth and strategic M&A, which are three critical focus areas for us as well. Their knowledge and insights will be powerful additions as we continue on our path of becoming a growth compounder through expansion in sustainable end markets, product innovation and M&A.
