    This is a very interesting hire for NVAX. Excellent experience on both sides of the buyer / seller transaction, via Amgen and his Analysts role.

    Seems well connected. I would imagine any pre hire discussions included his connections and strategic direction. Board must have liked this guy and in line with his views.

    Should be an interesting Summer at NVAX!
