The eyes of Pennsylvania’s biotech leaders are focused on all types of up-and-coming stars, including one from their own mouthpiece. One of 2016’s 16 most anticipated individuals at the forefront of the Pennsylvania bioscience scene — and the only one from Chester County — is orchestrating its trade association’s member relations, making strategic connections that help them build the relationships they need to thrive in the state.
His name is Patrick Hayakawa, and his Wayne-based employer — Pennsylvania Bio — just announced its 16 to Watch in ‘16 based on a committee of nine’s review of past-year successes and prospects for the year to come.
“These 16 individuals reflect the diversity and promise of the commonwealth’s life sciences community,” President and CEO Christopher P. Molineaux said in a Philadelphia Business Journal report. “From medical device companies, research institutions, digital health and service organizations, we look forward to celebrating these leaders who have shown a strong commitment to our business and science communities.”
Hayakawa brings with him a plethora of valuable business connections from his time as Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry Small Business Program Manager and most recently CCCBI Director of Membership.
He will be honored at Pennsylvania Bio’s Dec. 9 holiday mixer at The HUB in Conshohocken.
