Stuart Itkin has been hired to oversee all of Exostar’s strategic and tactical product management and marketing activities.
“In just a few short years, Exostar has gone from having no presence in the life science and health care industries to serving half of the 20 largest global pharmaceutical firms,” noted Itkin.
“I see great opportunity to accelerate speed-to-market for new drugs and therapies and ultimately enable better patient outcomes by enabling participants in communities of interest to privately, compliantly, and confidently seek, share, and acquire the valuable information they need in a timely fashion,” he added.
Itkin told us his goal as vice president of product management is to extend the reach of the company’s solutions by making them easier to use and higher performing, “and augmenting them with compelling new capabilities that leverage emerging technologies like AI, machine learning, and IoT.”
He would also like to bring Exostar’s supply chain management solutions – which have historically been used in the aerospace and defense industries – to the company’s current and future life science and health care customers.
Itkin is an advisory board member at several early-stage cybersecurity businesses and is a mentor at the seed accelerator MACH37.
